Peter Shipp - Vice Chairman

Peter Shipp - Vice Chairman

Peter's special interest has always been in public relations and he established excellent relationships with local media, local MP's with whom he often corresponded and sometimes met , and with all the local authorities in Hull, East Yorkshire and Scarborough whose areas EYMS served , and with an excellent workforce the company also enjoyed a very good public reputation. Peter was instrumental in starting the East Riding Transport Partnership many years ago and remains an independent member of that Partnership since retirement. On retirement he was also asked to join the East Riding of Yorkshire Community Transport Partnership, and mainly due to the local sponsorships which EYMS provided for many years Peter is also now President of the Hull Civic Society and Hull Choral Union.

Peter has lived in Elloughton since moving to the area and joined HWRA as a Trustee early in 2020.

Peter was born in Devon where he started his 56-year career in the bus and coach industry with the local bus company.  This career took him through a series of promotions to Stockport, East Sussex and Newcastle before ending up in East Yorkshire where he joined East Yorkshire Motor Services as Traffic Manager in 1980.  Peter was a second-tier member of the seven-strong management buyout team which formed EYMS Group and bought the company when the National Bus Company (of which EYMS was a subsidiary) was privatised in February 1987. EYMS bought a number of other operators and at one point had around 1500 staff.  One by one the other six members of the MBO moved elsewhere or retired leaving Peter as Chairman and Chief Executive and he and his family as sole owners of the company from 1997. As the financial situation was becoming more difficult and at the age of 74 Peter thought it about time to retire so the company, by then with around 700 employees and over 300 buses and  coaches, was sold to the national Go-Ahead Group in June 2017.
