Roger Marchant – Transport Executive


Roger is Managing Director of Marchant’s Coaches Limited, which has been an active Chamber member since 1994. He is a past Chamber President and has represented the Chamber on transport, planning, retail and tourism committees.  Roger currently manages the Chamber’s transport affairs, lobbying Borough and County Councils.

On leaving school Roger joined the family business, starting a five-year apprenticeship as a Commercial Motor Mechanic. After spending several years coach driving throughout Great Britain and Europe, Roger took over the running of the workshops and subsequently succeeded his father to become Managing Director.

Roger is Cheltenham born and he is married with 2 sons and 4 grandchildren. To deal with the stresses of life he enjoys teaching and training karate at the Cheltenham YMCA, with 2012 marking his fortieth year in the sport – so don’t mess with Roger!

The support and networking opportunities that the Chamber offered to me as director of a new business really appealed. The board and members I spoke to seemed really interested in my business.
