Martijn Gilbert is our 2020 President and a well-known figure in the bus industry, whose rise has been meteoric. He was involved in smaller independent bus operations in his youth, but more recently has become well-knwon for running Arriva's Yorkshire Tiger operations, becoming CEO of Reading Buses and is now Managing Director of one of Go-Ahead's biggest and most significant operations, Go North East.
However when he's not running buses in the North-East Martijn is a passionate bus enthusiast, and, following his Presidential Adress on 30 January, returns to London to treat us to a talk about his enthusiast side rather than about the 'day job'.
Palestra is located opposite Southwark Underground Station and on bus routes
40 and 63.
