Formerly of Siemens, Eurostar and Silverlink Train Services, in his most recent role at London Underground White was responsible for operations and infrastructure during a period of major change on the subsurface railway.

CEO Patrick Verwer said: “In Steve we are appointing a senior transport professional with the skills and management experience to lead GTR through the next stage of our modernisation programme, to increase capacity on the most congested part of the UK rail network.

“I would like to thank Nick very much for the hard work, dedication and leadership that he has brought to GTR during a very challenging period. He has made a major contribution to the business, from strengthening the team to collaborative working with a wide range of stakeholders. I wish him all the very best for the future.”
