Arthur Whiteside is to retire as Managing Director UK Sales at Alexander Dennis at the end of this month.
After an automotive career spanning more than five decades, Whiteside will step back from day-to-day involvement but will continue to support the business through a transitional phase.
Colin Robertson, Alexander Dennis Chief Executive, said, “Arthur has been an outstanding leader of the UK Sales team and his contribution to shaping the UK bus market and establishing our domestic market leadership cannot be underestimated. He will be greatly missed by colleagues, customers and the wider industry. We wish Arthur a long and very happy retirement.”
While Alexander Dennis finalises a new structure for its UK sales organisation, customers will continue to be looked after by their established contacts Martin Brailey (Sales Director for London & the South), Richard Matthews (Retail Sales Director Bus & Coach) and Keith Watson (UK Customer Development Director with responsibility for major operating groups).
