Mark Maile OWNER.

I have 13 years experience in the coaching industry, from coach driver up to Transport Manager, with several reputable coach companies in Suffolk and Essex and now the owner of Navigator Coaches Ltd. Previous to this, I was a Navigating Officer in the Royal Fleet Auxiliary for 20 years. You may now guess where the name for the company came from.

Having worked in all roles within the coaching industry, coupled with my naval career, I have an appreciation of what it takes to deliver the high standards necessary in customer service, cleanliness, presentation and punctuality. I do not expect any of my team to do undertake anything that I would not be prepared to do myself and expect my team to share the same values.

I want to deliver a service above and beyond what our customers expect and deliver an ethos where our passengers become our friends.

In my spare time I enjoy relaxing by the sea and family BBQ’s (weather permitting of course).

Michael Davis Operations Manager.

From a very early age if someone asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up I would instantly reply "A Continental Coach driver". Now that I have grown up, nearly, I am proud to boast that for many years I drove luxury coaches all over mainland Europe.

I have undertaken many roles within the bus and coach industry from cleaner to driver and reservations clerk to a company director. I still enjoy driving but my main interests now are compliance, training and helping to develop Navigator Coaches to be the best passenger transport business in East Anglia. I hold numerous qualifications relating to my role as Operations Manager with Navigator Coaches and I enjoy delivering training to a very high standard.

In my free time I enjoy walking the family Cocker spaniel (Tilly) and watching my boys play football (not at the same time). I also like taking photos and making videos, some of which will be used to promote Navigator Coaches on the website and Facebook page.

So, when you book a coach for Private hire or come on one of our holidays or day trips you will know that somewhere along the line Michael was involved, whether it be in the planning stage or training the staff to deliver the best in customer service or maybe driving the coach for you. I will always do my best to make your travelling experience with Navigator coaches as near perfect as it can be.

Roger Cripps Driver.

I have 47 years experience as a Coach Driver for various companies in East Anglia and London delivering quality tours and day excursions (both UK and European) as well as Home to School transport.

I joined Navigator Coaches because I could see that it was a company that was proud of the service it delivers and I wanted to be part of this team.

I enjoy the variety in the work we undertake and enjoy meeting new people and providing them with a quality experience.

In my spare time I have a passion for all things engineering as well as a keen interest in Coaches and Coach Rallies.
