Named in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List earlier this year for services to the bus and coach manufacturing sector, he has driven the transformation of a predominantly UK-focused bus and coach manufacturer into the world’s largest double decker manufacturer.

Colin said: “I am delighted and deeply humbled to receive this CBE.

“I couldn’t have achieved it without the fantastic team I have the privilege of leading at Alexander Dennis.”
