Looking forward to his new role, Neil said: “May I start by expressing my thanks to Tim Dugher, who has led the board of NCB since its very early days, for the way he has helped it establish itself as a trusted partner in the rail certification sector.

“I join the board at a difficult moment, given the Covid-19 pandemic and all its implications for business and individuals. I am confident however that the NCB will continue to provide the excellent certification service that the industry needs and I look forward to working with colleagues across the whole of the rail industry as we seek to take it forward.”
