FDC NEWS New Commercial Director

Announcement from First Devon & Cornwall
Simon Newport has been appointed Commercial Director for First’s bus operations in Devon and Cornwall. He joins the company from First Bristol.
A glimmer of hope:
"In Dorset, I had 5 successful years developing the business. My biggest success in this role was the implementation and introduction of the award winning Service X53. The new route was and still is a great success, linking the Jurassic Coast to Exeter and Poole. Working in conjunction with Devon and Dorset County Councils, we experienced amazing passenger growth and received national recognition for all of our hard work. I feel that this success has really improved the overall profile of the company in the area”.
The X53 is a great success and is a credit to all involved as it shows what can be achieved when bus companies work with local authorities. If Mr Newport can bring some of this to FDC then he will be warmly welcomed by passengers in the area.
