New Appointments for WN VTech’s Bus Division


Mellor, part of the WN VTech group, has appointed Michael Gillen to the position of Bus Division Head of Sales. His role will see him provide the organisation with strategically important leadership of both the Mellor and Treka sales teams.

This appointment comes as Mellor continues to see strong demand for its all-electric Sigma Bus range. Representing the broadest line-up of low-floor, zero-emissions buses from a single manufacturer in Europe, the model has been lauded for its exceptional fit and finish, innovative design and high levels of configurability.

With more than 30 years’ experience in the bus and coach industry, Michael joins the organisation from rental and finance firm, Mistral Group, where he served as Regional Sales Manager for Scotland, Cumbria and Northumberland. He also has prior experience in vehicle brokerage and operations.

“It’s a privilege to be leading the sales teams” Michael said. “The company is undoubtedly on an upwards trajectory, with operators across the UK and Europe looking to add size-appropriate, all-electric buses to their fleets. No-one offers the same level of vehicle diversity as we do, and it’s rewarding that we can meet the needs of such a broad range of customers.”

In addition, former Mellor and Treka General Manager, Morgan Clissett, has been promoted to the role of Bus Division Managing Director, taking over from Mark Clisset, overseeing both the Mellor and Treka businesses.

Speaking as Bus Division Managing Director, Morgan said: “The launch of Sigma was a landmark moment for the Mellor brand and reinforced our commitment to providing operators with a choice of zero-emission size and cost appropriate buses. Looking ahead, 2023 is set to be just as exciting, with significant Sigma deliveries and an update to our wider model line-up later in the year.  Everyone at WN VTech would like to thank Mark for his expertise and experience, particularly with his pivotal contribution to the launch of the Sigma range over the last 12 months”.
