Our People

Meet the Management Team at Johnsons Coach Travel...

John Johnson

Commercial Director

Helping out from an early age, John has us in stitches with stories of hours spent filling up coaches with the old hand fuel pump and how he became a dab hand at furniture removals. Joining the managerial team in 1978, he's spent over 35 years at the helm with his brother, Peter.
 
Nowadays, John is the company's Commercial Director, the head honcho of marketing and sales; he loves looking after our customers and always works with a 'big grin guarantee'! Outside of work, John's transport preference is for 2 wheels; he bikes to work, he helps develop young bike racers at Stratford Cycle Club  and can often be seen peddling off on mountainous adventures with his wife, Anne.

Peter Johnson

Operations Director

Mechanic by trade, paper boy by nature, Peter began his professional life as a HGV mechanic. After growing up in the family business, it was an easy transition from HGVs back to coaches and buses, where he joined John on the managerial team in 1979.

Peter oversees all aspects of operations at Johnsons, ensuring the highest levels of fleet safety, presentation and punctuality, amongst many other things. When he's not working, he enjoys nothing more than crafting recycled wood into benches, toy boxes and chicken hutches, and helping out on his wife, Kate's farm.

Kyran Flynn

General Manager

Kyran started his Johnsons journey in 2017 on the reservations team, offering knowledgeable information of holidays, day excursions and trips. He has since become the General Manager of Johnsons, overseeing the Sales Team, the Traffic Office and the Private Hire team. He is a vibrant and bubbly person who is always looking to answer peoples questions and enquiries.
