Edwards leaves MCV Edwards leaves MCV
MCV’s commercial director, Vernon Edwards, has left the company. The unexpected announcement was made by MCV deputy chairman Jim Boswell who says:  “It was not an easy decision to Vernon to make but the board had a full understanding of his decision. Over the past seven years the board recognises the contribution he has made in establishing MCV as a serious player in the UK bus sector.  We wish Vernon every success for the future and look forward to building on foundations he has set.”

Edwards steered MCV through difficult times, finding a new chassis partner in MAN when TransBus cut off the supply of Dart chassis in 2002. More recently he added VDL to the company’s chassis choices, and had established links with Mercedes and Volvo for new products to be launched in the UK in 2010. MCV is Egyptian-owned, and took over some of the assets and designs of the failed Marshall Bus business.

Before joining the newly-created MCV in 2002, Edwards had a long history in bus and coach sales having worked for Leyland Bus, DAF Bus, Duple, LAG and the Mosley Group.
