Stephen Walsh Optare RSM

Optare has appointed Stephen Walsh (pictured) to the position of Regional Sales Manager for Scotland and East of England.

Stephen joins Optare from Eminox. He spent over a decade with the emissions control specialist, with his most recent role having been within its service and aftersales department. He has previously project managed a supply and retrofit programme for Euro VI upgrades. That has given him “extensive knowledge” of the bus industry, says Optare.

Adds Optare Commercial Director Robert Drewery: “We welcome Stephen to the team. His experience and understanding of the importance of long-term support for our operator partners will be instrumental in his success.”

Stephen Walsh adds: “I am delighted to join Optare. I look forward to bringing one of the best bus portfolios on the market to operators across my region.”
