He was previously Chief Commercial Officer at Group plc and before that held a number of roles with Expedia, the online travel company.

Karen Geary (current independent Non-Executive Director and Chair of the Remuneration Committee of Mobico) has been appointed Senior Independent Director with effect from 1 August 2023. 


Helen Weir, Chair of Mobico, commented: "I am delighted to welcome Nigel as a Non-Executive Director. He has a strong track record in the travel sector, as well as in transport electrification, green energy and sustainability matters. Nigel brings a valuable strategic and commercial mindset and will add to the Board's capabilities in relation to transformation and the digitisation of Mobico. I look forward to working with him.


I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Matthew for his invaluable contribution to the Company. He has had a considerable impact on Mobico during his more than eight years on the Board. I have particularly valued his support and advice during my first few months as Chair. We wish him all the best for the future."

Mike was appointed to the Board in July 2015 and will reach nine years of service in July 2024. Mike has agreed to remain as Chair of the Audit Committee until the Annual General Meeting in 2024 in order to ensure a smooth and orderly transition of responsibilities to the new Chair of the Audit Committee.
