SPS Operations Director recognised as rising star in UK transport industry

SPS Operations Director, Simon Mohammad, has been recognised in a newly-published list of rising stars in the transport sector.  Simon was featured in this month’s Passenger Transport magazine and celebrated for playing his part in driving forward change and improvements for customers and employees.

Passenger Transport and Tracsis Transport Consultancy, the executive search, selection and interim management specialists, identified 51 dynamic passenger transport professionals to keep an eye on. 

Alex Warner, of Passenger Transport, said: “Our industry continues to adapt to change, and we owe a lot to our talented individuals across the sector. It’s because of this that Passenger Transport decided to team up with Tracsis Transport Consultancy to identify rising stars in the industry and shine a light on their impressive achievements to date.

“We had a staggering number of nominations and it’s been a real challenge deciding who should make the list. This is a challenge we face on a daily basis at our executive search and selection department within Tracsis Transport Consultancy, where we work with such an exceptional talent pool across the sector. Our rising stars are united by their contribution to keeping our customers happy and safe, and championing public transport at this crucial time.”

Simon (pictured) was recognised in the Inspiring Leaders category where he was described as a charismatic, hugely engaging, galvanising leader with an obsessive focus on the detail of the customer proposition.

Simon said: “I am delighted to have achieved this accolade and to be recognised in the UK transport sector alongside a fantastic group of rising stars who, like me, are dedicated to keeping our customers happy and safe. I am supported by a fantastic team at SPS and First Bus and this award reflects the pride, passion and dedication of us all working together putting our people and clients at the heart of all that we do.”

Simon Cursio, Managing Director at SPS, added: “This is a fantastic endorsement for which Simon should be very proud. Simon epitomises what it is to be an inspiring leader putting our people and clients at the forefront at all times.”
