Northern has appointed Jayne Breen as its new head of property.

Jayne, from Manchester, joins from Carlisle Support Services but is a familiar face as she was previously Northern’s head of engineering services. 

Prior to that she was also the train presentation delivery manager for their services in the North West, managing the teams who make sure Northern’s fleet of trains are clean for customers.

In her new role, Jayne will be responsible for managing the train operator’s property and operational teams across its 500-station estate.

Lisa Leighton, people director at Northern, said: “I am delighted to welcome Jayne back to the business – she’s had such a successful track record of leadership delivering multi-functional support services within a variety of sectors throughout her career.” 

“I know she’ll continue to help transform Northern, making a positive impact for the customers and communities we serve.”

Jayne added: “I am so pleased to be back and can’t wait to get started on delivering a station estate that works well for our customers and that we can be proud of.”
