Bus Stop Sales expands southern state reach with new appointment

Bus Stop Sales continues to add to its sizeable bus and coach industry experience with its latest sales appointment

Bus Stop Sales, the Australian supplier of popular bus brands such as King Long, has announced that renowned industry professional Don Imrie will join the team to support its growing national fleet programs in the southern states.

Imrie has a long history in the Australian bus and coach industry, having started with Cardinia Transit before it was bought out by Ventura. Following that, Imrie worked for Iveco before working as the owner of Kingstons Tours until 2019.

Most recently, Imrie was Ebusco’s Australian sales director until the company announced that it was ceasing all operations in Australia earlier this year.

“I saw an opportunity to hop on board with Bus Stop and bring my experience to their successful operations with a focus to add value to key account management,” Imrie told ABC.

“I’ve known southern states general manager Guy Pex for a long time, and I knew King Long has always been a good product, so when the chance came, I was excited to go with it.”

Imrie says he’s looking forward to working with the dynamic Bus Stop Sales team that’s focused on customer outcomes. Whether it be King Long’s zero-emissions bus range or school bus options, the wide offering of diesel and EV solutions will allow Imrie to add value to operators end to end.

“I’ve always heard good reports about King Long’s low-floor electric buses, as it features great quality components as standard,” Imrie says.

“King Long also offers everything, from mid-sized school buses to sleek low-floor electric models, so there’s plenty of opportunities.”

He says he’s looking forward to bringing his industry experience and relationships to Bus Stop and continuing to build the brand in Australasia.

Bus Stop Sales Director Pete White has welcomed Imrie to the brand.

“In particular,  Don’s ability to forge strong industry connections and seek out partnership opportunities has meant that he is a logical fit for our next phase of growth as a supplier to national fleets,” White told ABC.
