Senior figures leave National Express as part of shake-up

06 September 2023

Tom Stables and David Bradford, two senior figures at bus and coach business National Express, have left the company.

National Express said that both mangers are no longer with the company following “limited changes” to its structure. 

Its bus and coach divisions have been brought under one senior leadership team.

This has resulted in a small number of roles no longer being required but frontline staff have not been affected, said National Express.

Tom Stables was chief executive of National Express UK and Germany while David Bradford was managing director of its West Midlands bus arm.

Stables joined National Express in 2011 and held several senior roles including business development director, managing director of the UK coach business and most recently chief executive of UK and Germany since 2018.

Bradford joined the company in 2010 and was group commercial director and then managing director of the West Midlands bus division from 2018.

Former BP senior executive Alex Jensen is due to join the company as chief executive in September, with current UK coach managing director Chris Hardy acting as interim for the intervening period.
