The Go-Ahead Group has appointed Peter Robinson managing director of business development, with responsibility for UK & international business development activities including mergers and acquisitions.
He replaces, with immediate effect, Martin Dean, who takes up the role of MD of Go-Ahead’s UK regional bus business.
Go-Ahead said Robinson’s new role will involve working with its operating companies to develop the group’s position in existing markets, as well as leading on expansion into new markets.
The Group added that Robinson was instrumental in its expansion into the Republic of Ireland and Manchester.
“It’s a privilege to follow in the footsteps of Martin Dean to lead the talented group of individuals in business development,” Robinson said.
“I firmly believe the Go-Ahead business model, with its focus on local decision making, can bring further value to our home market as well as the wealth of growing markets around the world. I look forward to continue working with our teams around the world to support this growth.”
