David Knowles becomes COO of GBRf

One-time train driver David Knowles has been promoted to chief operating officer of GB Railfreight (GBRf), moving from his previous role as production director, where he was in charge of GBRf’s operational development and delivery.

Core responsibilities now include fleet procurement and maintenance.

David will be taking on development of new markets and is expected to strengthen his team shortly. The former driver spent 14 years on the footplate with BR, Rail Express Systems and EWS. He joined GBRf in 2004. As an ops manager, he helped build GBRf’s expanding portfolio of services, working with the Royal Mail, LUL infrastructure and the coal industry.

Says Knowles, ‘Whilst being passionate about maintaining GBRf’s unique company culture and expanding on its reputation for service quality, I am very much looking forward to helping secure our long-term growth by developing new relationships and building on the successful strategic partnerships that we have created over the years.’
