Les Jones has joined Transdev as engineering manager covering three depots in Harrogate, York and Malton.
“I’m looking forward to working with the great engineering teams at our three North Yorkshire depots to deliver a safe, efficient and reliable service for our customers who travel on our amazing buses,” says Jones.
“I’ve been at the heart of modernisation in my previous roles and I’ve seen the positive difference it can really make to our teams, in our depots and out on the road.”
Jones began his engineering apprenticeship with then council-owned Preston Bus before joining Leyland-based truck engineering support firm Mick Wilson Commercials.
He returned to Preston Bus in 1996 and progressed to regional engineering manager based at its Deepdale depot. Following Preston’s acquisition by Rotala, he took over responsibility for depots in Lancashire and Greater Manchester.
