We are pleased to welcome a new member to the Senior Leadership Team.

Rob Hughes has recently joined as Head of Operations as we look to strengthen, develop and grow our operational and service delivery experience to be the best that there is.

Delivering a better experience for the client and the end user is key to Rob’s role and Rob has had first-hand experience in Games Transport service delivery, working with Transport for London to strategically co-ordinate vehicles during the Olympic Games.

Rob previously worked at our parent company First Bus where he joined as Graduate Trainee in 2011, Rob went on to become a Senior Manager and was Awarded ‘Young Manager of the Year’ and CILT recognition.  Rob continues his professional development today as he studies for his MBA.

Rob holds a Transport Manager Certificate of Professional Competence and is keen to deliver a high quality, efficient and compliant service.

Rob said “I am excited to join First Travel Solutions at what is going to be a time of expansion – with new contract wins in rail replacement and also supporting the Glasgow 2018 European Championships, it is going to be another busy Summer.”

Andrew Scholey, Managing Director said: “We have made some internal structure changes at FTS to bring a stronger, B2B focused team together to ensure that we can deliver better experiences for our clients and their customers.  Rob will be intrinsic to ensuring our on the ground operations are achieving that goal.’’
