Education and commercial sector transport specialist, Kura, has promoted current Head of Customers, David Biszby, to the role of Operations Director. David will take over from departing Operations Director, Chris Coles, in July 2021.
David brings strong leadership and experience to the role, with a proven track record of working across both the corporate and education sectors. David’s time working with Kura’s key customers gives him an exceptional understanding of customers’ needs and future plans while understanding the company’s core goals, values and plans for expansion.
The appointment comes as Kura expands its operational reach and growth across new sectors. Following the successful launch of its home-to-school technology in 2019, the company has its eyes set on revolutionising corporate transportation in 2021, following the majority of employees returning to offices later this year.
The Operations lead role was previously held by Chris Coles, whose specialist knowledge helped the company position itself as a leading expert on controversial PSVAR regulations. Chris is set to step down on the 9th of July 2021, to pursue a more international role but has been working closely with David in order to ensure a seamless handover.
David Biszby, recently appointed Operations Director at Kura, commented: “It is an honour and a privilege for me to be appointed as Operations Director at Kura; it is a pivotal role and one that is at the heart of the business. I hope to build on the solid foundations Chris has built over the years, and bring new opportunities for growth and success for Kura in the years to come.
Godfrey Ryan, CEO of Kura, commented: “Customer experience is at the core of our business model and David’s depth of knowledge will be a key foundation for excellence in the Operations Director role.
“David’s passion for service quality and dedication to building strong relationships with Kura’s customers and partners are key strengths. We have no doubt that he will bring new innovative thinking to the role and help us continue delivering on both our customer promise and commercial objectives in the coming months and years.
“We are sad to see Chris depart and we wish him well in his new venture.”
