Tom Morgan

Tom Morgan

Director of Service Delivery, Tom, took up the post in March 2015 after being General Manager at our sister company, Kinchbus since 2012. Whilst there, he helped the Loughborough operator go from strength to strength as well as being named as 'Young Bus Manager of The Year'.

Tom has a keen eye for detail and puts a strong emphasis on customer service. Tom likes to include the entire delivery team in his work to ensure we maintain our reputation as the really good bus company.

When he's not adding to his extensive Ralph Lauren shirt collection or chasing eggs, you can find Tom at the cricket. He may even be dressed as Kaptain Kinch.

Sharon Bailey

Sharon Bailey

Sharon Bailey’s husband Mark set the family trend by becoming a bus driver and the next thing he knew, Sharon had passed her test too. Before long she had been promoted to be his boss (every woman’s dream or what?) at our Ilkeston depot, any remains of which now lie somewhere beneath the Tesco superstore.

Now Sharon is the operations manager at our Derby base where she is known (amongst many things) for her immaculate filing system and, of course, for her love of giraffes. Well, don’t we all…

Darren Thorpe

Darren Thorpe

In a previous (non-bus related) life, Darren studied catering and worked in the licensed trade before deciding that the open road was more his thing.

Belper-based Peter Kay lookalike (sorry, Darren…) is our sixes, sevens, allestree and swift Team leader which makes him just as well known in Wirksworth, Matlock and Bakewell as he is on the Belper Estates, Duffield and Derby. In his spare time, Darren’s another big family man – being a proud Dad to two beautiful daughters.
