An engineering manager at Arriva’s Castleford depot has won a prestigious prize at the ‘industry leading’ UK Bus Awards 2015.

The gold award for “Engineer of the Year” went to Tony Lowe.

His dedication and passion to innovate led to him being short-listed. His colleagues also described his leadership style as transformational, motivating and inspiring.

Mr Lowe said: “It was one of the highlights of my career, it was amazing to win. I have always set myself goals and targets and this makes me feel I have really accomplished something.

“I have to say though that my team have really helped me deliver results and I’ve been so well supported by my colleagues and the directors.”

His win on November 24 follows on from Arriva Yorkshire being named as UK Bus Operator of the Year.
