Arriva North West & Wales is delighted to announce that John Rimmer, area managing director for Arriva Manchester, has been recognised for his service to the Industry in Passenger Transport. Having worked in the bus industry for 49 years, John has shown dedication and high professional standards throughout and the award is a great honour and thoroughly well deserved.

Now area managing director for Arriva Manchester, John has a wealth of experience and knowledge and is a well-respected colleague and industry professional.

The CILT Logistics and Transport Awards for Education & Excellence 2015 were held in Manchester in June, where John was presented with the award at the glittering gala dinner.
