Ben Ackroyd, chief operating officer at Porterbrook said: “I am delighted to welcome Andy onboard. We’re leading transformative investments in new and existing fleets, and crucially in our asset management capabilities for the long term, for example through the recent acquisition of Long Marston Rail Innovation Centre in Warwickshire and our 49% stake in Brodie Engineering in Kilmarnock.

“Andy’s wealth of rolling stock engineering experience, energy and leadership will focus these capabilities on supporting our customers and the vital services they operate.”

Andy said: “Joining Porterbrook presents an exciting opportunity for me to contribute to shaping the future of rail. I am looking forward to being part of a dynamic team leveraging Porterbrook’s innovative solutions and industry expertise to enhance sustainability, efficiency and accessibility across the rail sector.
