RSSB selects new chair

Rail industry body RSSB has appointed Barbara Moorhouse as its new chair.

Barbara is a non-executive director at Balfour Beatty, Microgen and Agility Trains.

Her executive career encompasses board appointments in international IT companies, director general positions at the Ministry of Justice and Department for Transport and as chief operating officer for Westminster City Council.

Barbara brings a broad range of expertise in commercial leadership and public service delivery to her new role.

RSSB CEO Mark Phillip said: “The board is delighted Barbara has agreed to join RSSB as the new chair for the exciting period ahead to oversee implementation of our new five-year strategy to deliver a better, safer railway.

“We would like to thank Anna Bradley, who stepped down at the end of December for guiding RSSB through a significant change programme.”

Barbara added: “Rail travel is central to my working week and I look forward to RSSB playing its full part in the industry at an important time for the future of the rail sector.”
