Thank you for the warm welcome

Group Chief Executive's Weekly Message

"I'm looking forward to working with such skilled, committed and professional colleagues"
31st October 2014


On Monday I took up post as Group Chief Executive of Translink and I would like to thank everyone I have met for a very warm welcome. I spent the week visiting some of the larger bus, rail, engineering and operational facilities in Belfast and more importantly meeting with many of our people who deliver front line services.

I think this was the right note to start on – what makes the Translink business very different from others is that we really are a 'people business'. One thing that has been very obvious is the professionalism of all I met and the commitment to giving our customers a great service.

Of course I will be visiting more of our locations over the coming weeks and months, particularly outside Belfast - and meeting as many of you as I can. Thank you again for the warm welcome and excellent introduction to various functions of the business.
