Former Transport Minister, Dr Stephen Ladyman has Joined Clearview Traffic Group

Clearview Traffic Group Ltd has today announced the appointment of Stephen Ladyman as Strategic advisor. Stephen will facilitate closer working relationships with Government, key agencies and large enterprises across the transport sector. A former scientist and former Minister of State of the UK Department for Transport, Stephen brings with him a wealth of both private and public sector experience.

Stephen was the Member of Parliament for South Thanet from 1997 to 2010. Before being appointed to ministerial office he was a member of several senior Parliamentary committees including the Environment Select Committee and its Transport sub-committee. Between 2003 and 2005 he was Minister for Community in the Department of Health and from 2005 to 2007 he was Minister of State in the Department for Transport.

Between 2007 and 2010 he advised ITIS (Holdings) PLC (now Inrix), a company selling real time traffic information. In addition he founded the All-Party Parliamentary Freight Group and the All Party Major Infrastructure Projects Group and chaired the South East England Regional Select Committee.

As a transport minister his brief included roads and road safety, shipping and ports, transport technology and renewable transport fuels. He was also responsible for the Driving and Vehicles Licensing Authority (DVLA), the Driving Standards Agency (DSA), the Vehicle and Operator Services Agency (VOSA) and the Highways Authority (HA) as well as representing the Department in the European Union.

He is probably best known by the public for his time as Minister of State for Transport and especially for his appearance on ‘Top Gear’ defending speed cameras.

Commenting on the appointment, Nick Lanigan, Managing Director of Clearview Traffic Group Ltd, said: “This is an exciting time for Clearview Traffic Group as we push on with our ambitious growth plans. Engaging Stephen to work alongside us at this time will bring significant benefits for the business. His understanding for the market, combined with his insight of transport industry ministry operations will enable us to further boost our profile with key stakeholders.”
