As you are aware Nick Knox has joined Arriva North East on secondment as their Commercial Director.

As a result of this move, we will be making some temporary changes to the structure of the senior management team of Arriva the Shires.

Paul Woolmore will continue as Head of Business East and will now be responsible for Luton, Hemel Hempstead, Watford, Stevenage and Ware Depots. All the managers for these locations will report directly to Paul.

Paul will take the lead on issues involving Luton Borough Council, Central Bedfordshire Council and Hertfordshire County Council

Maq Alibhai will take over full responsibility for Milton Keynes and continue to be the main contact for Milton Keynes Council. Maq will report directly to me

I will have a watching brief over Aylesbury and High Wycombe depot’s, with the Managers of these locations reporting directly to me, I will take over as the key contact for Buckinghamshire County Council and Oxfordshire County Council

Nick Knox will continue to have some involvement with Arriva the Shires until 3 January 2012, but this will mainly be the completion of projects.

I am sure you will join me in wishing Nick, Paul and Maq every success in their revised roles.
