Two board advisors have been appointed to ie people, a new rail recruitment firm that specialises in executive searches.
Kathryn Cooper-Fay is chief executive of JPPD Consulting Group and has previously held senior positions with Kier and ATOC (now the RDG).
In her part-time role with ie people she will guide the board with design and implementation of the customer experience strategy.
Colin Morris, managing director of programme advisory firm One CHM, also joins as a part-time board member.
Colin was most recently an executive director for strategy at HS2 and will be directly responsible for operational performance and governance in his new role.
Geoff Banks, founder and managing director of ie people, says he believes his new venture can challenge the world of executive recruitment in the transport sector both in the UK and overseas.
A rail recruiter with more than 20 years in the industry, Geoff previously oversaw group sales and business development at RTC Group prior to launching ie people and has previously worked as an internal recruiter for CH2M and Bombardier Transportation. He also sits on the Rail Supply Group’s SME council board.
