The Confederation of Passenger Transport (CPT) has announced Aaron Hill as its new Director of CPT Cymru.

Aaron brings to CPT a wealth of experience from membership organisations and the third sector, having an extensive background in policy, influencing and external affairs. His previous roles have covered a wide variety of public services, including housing, regeneration, health and education.

CPT Chief Executive Graham Vidler said: “I’m delighted to welcome Aaron to the CPT team. His significant policy and external affairs experience will be a huge asset to our members in Wales.

“Aaron is joining at a crucial time for our work in raising the benefits of the bus and coach sector with the Welsh Government. This is to secure long-term investment to allow local councils and operators to plan more effectively to drive up connectivity improvements for passengers, slash congestion and meet Net Zero targets.”

Aaron Hill said: “I’m really excited to meet our members and get stuck into the policy agenda that affects buses and coaches in Wales. There are big questions on funding, Net Zero and upcoming legislative change. I look forward to championing the role buses and coaches can play in tackling the climate emergency and boosting local economies.”

In previous roles, Aaron has been Director of Policy with the Scottish Federation of Housing Associations and Head of Policy with Wales-based organisations including Community Housing Cymru and the National Deaf Children’s Society. He is also a board member with a local housing association – RHA Wales – and was previously Chair of Public Affairs Cymru.
