Bus boss up for European award

A DIRECTOR at a bus company that serves Hucknall has been shortlisted for a prestigious European award.

ALEX HORNBY, who is commercial director at Trent Barton, is in the running for a Talent in Mobility accolade.

The nomination is in recognition of the company’s efforts to encourage more people to use public transport.

Mr Hornby is the only nominee from an independent UK bus firm.

He is up against four others in the Best Project Manager category.

“It is fantastic to be shortlisted for an award,” said Mr Hornby, who joined Trent Barton two years ago at the age of 28.

“But it is really down to the hard work of everyone at the company.”
