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.
