Long-distance train operator CrossCountry has announced the appointment of Zoe Kennedy as HR director.

Zoe has extensive experience in sectors including financial services and energy, leading on several large-scale transformation programmes for well-known businesses.

Following a secondment as interim head of HR Operations, Zoe joins CrossCountry’s senior team to provide continued HR leadership and stability as the business embarks on its new National Rail Contract, which began earlier this month.

On her appointment, Zoe Kennedy said: “I’m looking forward to working with the wider leadership team to ensure CrossCountry is a great place to work, as well as focusing on broader issues around diversity, inclusion, and wellbeing.

“Our people are key to a high-performing railway and I’m looking forward to working with teams across the business to make sure we offer the best possible experiences and opportunities for colleagues.”

Tom Joyner, managing director at CrossCountry, added: “I know that Zoe’s varied experience, along with her commitment to tackling broader people issues in rail, will be a real asset to CrossCountry as we continue to strive to be the best employer possible and reinforce our position as long-distance rail operator of choice for customers.”

Zoe joins the business in a permanent position from Monday 23 October.
