Two Edwards Coach drivers contracted by National Express – Brent Humphries and Gerwyn Roberts, have been shortlisted for “Driver of the Year” by the select committee of the National Express Operator Awards. Edwards stated that we are indeed proud and honoured to have two of their drivers shortlisted from 2000 National Express drivers working in the UK. What an achievement by a family run award winning coach company from South Wales who this year are celebrating 90 years in the travel business.
Both drivers were nominated by their managers Stewart Isaac and Simon Davies due to their outstanding Customer Services Skills which they believe helped save a passenger’s life when taken ill on board the National Express coach travelling from Swansea to London.
Not only did the drivers receive thanks from the patient but they also received numerous letters from fellow passengers complimenting them on their quick reaction and composure when applying vital First Aid treatment.
The award ceremony will take place on Thursday 19th March 2015 in Coventry and Edwards Coaches are confident that both drivers will come back with awards.
