David Noyes, a former CEO of cruise lines Cunard and P&O Cruises and an ex-director of British Airways (BA), has joined the board of Network Rail as a non-executive director.
Current non-executive director Michael O’Higgins is retiring and will be leaving the board on August 31.
Noyes has spent his career working in the leisure and transport sectors, beginning some 30 years ago when he joined BA as a graduate.
Network Rail chair Sir Peter Hendy said: “Having someone with David’s background and experience, particularity in customer services and managing devolved businesses, will be a great asset to the board as Network Rail continues its transformation journey into a more customer focussed, devolved group of businesses.
“I’d like to thank Michael for his time with us and his successful contribution to the board.”
