Tributes have been paid to the chairman of Centro, Councillor Angus Adams, who has died suddenly aged 67.
Centro said Cllr Adams was taken ill at the home of his partner, Jennie, on Tuesday April 10.
He leaves two daughters and three grandchildren.
A Conservative member of Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council, he had been chairman of the Integrated Transport Authority (ITA) since 2010.
Councillor Jon Hunt, the vice-chairman of Centro, said:
“This is a very sad loss of a thoroughly decent man and everyone at Centro sends their sincere condolences to his family.
“Angus leaves the ITA in extremely good shape, with major investment coming in to the region and services maintained in difficult times.
“As ITA chairman he was a very effective regional diplomat. He was a pleasure to work with and he will be greatly missed.”
