Dynamic bus and coach and commercial insurance broker and risk manager, Gauntlet Group, has demonstrated its unswerving commitment to the upholding of professional standards within the insurance industry, by earning Chartered Insurance Broker status from the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII).

"Safety and insurance are becoming inextricably linked, against a backdrop of increasingly punitive legislation and the need for major cost savings”, says Ian McCarron, a Director of Gauntlet Group - an insurer and risk manager with over 20 years’ experience in the coach and bus sector.

The industry’s hot topics - including the Bus Services Bill, Brexit and devolution - will feature in Euro Bus Expo’s 2016 Master Class Theatre programme. Taking place at the NEC Birmingham on 1-3 November, the show’s speakers include Mark Fowles, MD, Nottingham City Transport; Jeff Counsell, MD, trentbarton; and Martijn Gilbert, CEO, Reading Buses.
