Phil Medlicott, managing director of Stagecoach Yorkshire, retired in February. Half of his long and varied career was spent with no fewer than six Stagecoach operating companies.
Phil started out in 1983 as a cash clerk with Crosville Motor Services, based at its Rock Ferry depot. After six months he moved into the commercial office, assisting with the preparation of schedules for Heswall and West Kirby depots. He also became the local NALGO representative.
