He has a master’s degree in mechanical engineering and was previously fleet director at London Overground and rail operations and fleet production manager at Chiltern Railways.

Greater Anglia’s managing director Jamie Burles said: “It’s an exciting time as we start to introduce our brand new fleet of trains and Martin’s experience will help our fleet and depot teams rise to these new challenges as we continue to strive to provide punctual, reliable services to our passengers.”
