Anglianbus MD to leave the business in July

Andrew Pursey, Anglian Bus Managing Director, is to leave the company in the summer.

Andrew will remain with the business until the end of July to enable a smooth transition to a new management team. He will be succeeded by Julian Patterson who will become Managing Director of both Konectbus and Anglian Bus. Julian will be supported by Philip Eden, who has been appointed Operations Manager, Anglian Bus.

Since Go-Ahead acquired Anglian Bus in April 2012 Andrew has overseen the transition of Anglian Bus from an established family-run business to ownership by The Go-Ahead Group.

Andrew said: "I have been involved in running Anglian Bus for the past 23 years and during the last 12 months I've seen the company enter a new era as part of Go-Ahead. I am now looking forward to supporting Julian Patterson in delivering a smooth transition before leaving to take up a new challenge."
