NEXT New General Manager – Stephanie Maher

Stephanie has worked for National Express for the last 8 years. Coming from the UK, she held various operational roles in the transit business there, including managing one of NX’s largest operations of 550 drivers and 220 buses with revenues exceeding £32m. During her time in the UK she won the internal UK Garage of the Year competition in 2015, and won Young Manager of the Year at the Industry UK Bus awards in 2016.

Stephanie is passionate about utilizing new technologies to their full potential with a key emphasis on staff engagement and empowerment to move the industry forward. She moved to the US business, originally on a 1yr project, in June 2017 as a Process Improvement Manager based in our corporate head office in Lisle where she’s been focused on improving school bus billing. She loved it so much she decided to stay, but only if she was allowed to move back to an operational role! She is close to completing her MBA in business from a UK university, and is currently working on her final project about integrated transport systems in the US. She has embraced the US culture and has found a love for watching US sports, after supporting the Cubs in Chicago she’s still undecided about whether to root for the Athletics or the Giants!
