|Roger French OBE|
Brighton’s most prominent businessman gets OBE
Roger French – MD of Brighton & Hove Bus & Coach Company – has been awarded an OBE in the Queen’s birthday honours list.
Although ostensibly for services to public transport it is compelling to conclude that the honour was equally for services to Brighton & Hove. Roger French is one of the most involved and active businesspeople in the city and has been for well over a decade. Apart from sitting on several key bodies including the Economic Partnership, Business Forum, LSP, Chamber of Commerce and the Hove Business Partnership he is also the Chair of the Martlets Hospice Trust.
Due to his elevated status he can expect a fair degree of ribbing over the next few weeks but no one that knows him would deny that the honour is exceptionally well deserved.
