Duncan Clark, GB Railfreight’s (GBRf) director of strategic development, has been appointed to the Rail Freight Group’s (RFG) board of directors.
Duncan joined GBRf in 2015 and oversees the company’s network capacity, business performance, major projects, business improvement, sales, and external communications.
Prior to joining GBRf, he spent a year working as programme director for Network Rail’s Digital Railway programme and was before that Network Rail’s general manager of freight.
Duncan said: “I am honoured to have been appointed to this position and there can be no more important time for the voice of the rail freight sector to be strongly represented.
“The next Control Period, which Network Rail is in the process of agreeing with the Government, could be pivotal for the future competitiveness of rail freight. The RFG must ensure that it puts across the views of the sector and that it achieves the outcomes that will be best for all who operate on the railways.”
GBRf’s managing director John Smith added: “Duncan is a worthy addition to the board and will bring all his extensive experience and no-nonsense approach to the RFG so that the group is as effective as it can be.
“We are extremely lucky to have him here at GBRf, and it is great to see that the rest of the industry will soon be able to benefit from his insights.”
RFG is the representative body for rail freight in the UK.
