Thamesdown appoints new commercial director

By Anita Jaynes on 15 June, 2015

Thamesdown Transport has appointed Peter Oliver as commercial director.

Peter has joined Thamesdown from Go South Coast, where he was previously commercial manager.

Initially a driver for the RAF, Peter became a bus driver in 2000 for Plymouth Citybus and worked his way up through the ranks, through a takeover by the Go-Ahead Group, which also owns Go South Coast.

Peter said: “I have known Thamesdown for a number of years.  The company has a very exciting future ahead, which I wanted to be part of.

“The opportunities that Thamesdown provides are almost unique in the transport industry thanks to its size and structure, and I’m looking forward to being able to work across both the commercial and operational aspects of the business.

“Significantly growing customer numbers and making bus travel the top choice for travel in and around Swindon are the key goals for me in this role and I look forward to working with the team in achieving this.”
