Posted: 17th October 2019

Stagecoach East Scotland welcomes Charlotte Somerville as new Marketing and Communications Manager

Bus operator Stagecoach East Scotland has confirmed the appointment of Charlotte Somerville to the role of Marketing Manager. Charlotte takes over the role from Sarah Elliott, who was recently promoted to Commercial Director.

Charlotte Somerville joins Stagecoach from TP Group, an Engineering and Consultancy company, having held the position of Group Marketing Manager based in Reading. Prior to this, she worked as a Divisional Marketing Specialist for Babcock Marine on multi million pound campaigns. Originally from Kirkcaldy, Charlotte also holds a BA (hons) degree in Business Management with Marketing and a Professional Diploma in Leadership and Management.

Douglas Robertson, Managing Director for Stagecoach East Scotland said: “I would like to congratulate Charlotte on her appointment and welcome her to Stagecoach. Charlotte’s vast marketing experience, particularly in strategy and communications will be a great addition to our award winning marketing team.”

Charlotte commented: “I’m delighted to have accepted the position of Marketing and Communications Manager with Stagecoach East Scotland. I am passionate about local communities and people, having previously lead charity and school campaigns. Corporate Social Responsibility is more than ticking a box and working for a customer focussed organisation like Stagecoach means I can actively bring positive engagement to our region, whilst also developing new marketing and internal communication campaigns and strategies for our team.

The team here at East Scotland have won multiple awards for their innovative marketing campaigns and creativity so I’m thankful to be joining a team of equally enthusiastic and ambitious people who will continue to grow awareness of the great things Stagecoach are doing in our region.”
