Go North East’s Andrew Tyldsley has retired following nearly 30 years with the company, and 40 years in the industry. Tyldsley worked at GMPTE, Merseyside PTE and Shearings, in the early days of his career before moving to the north east in 1989.
Having studied at Aston University in Birmingham in Transport Planning and Business, Tyldsley joined Lancashire United Transport as a bus conductor and then as a scheduler.
At the time of bus de-regulation in 1986 he joined Shearings, before moving to the north east in 1989 to be traffic manager at OK Motor Services in Bishop Auckland.
Following the acquisition of OK Travel by Go-Ahead in 1995, he moved to Go North East as its commercial manager and was part of the original senior team tasked to launch the merged group now known as Go North East.
