Nes­trans adds new mem­ber to board

Evening Express (City Final) - - UK & Abroad -

THE North-east’s travel part­ner­ship has ap­pointed a new mem­ber to its board. Ian Ross, a char­tered civil en­gi­neer, has joined the board of Nes­trans, fol­low­ing a re­cruit­ment process which was car­ried out late last year.

Mr Ross will join the board at his first meet­ing to­mor­row.

With 40 years of ex­pe­ri­ence at Fairhurst Con­sult­ing Engi­neers, in­clud­ing more than 20 as a part­ner, Mr Ross has worked on many di­verse trans­port pro­jects. Paired with his com­pre­hen­sive knowl­edge of lo­cal is­sues, it is hoped he will aid the de­liv­ery of the Re­gional Trans­port Strat­egy, which aims to boost the econ­omy, qual­ity of life and en­vi­ron­ment of the re­gion. Coun­cil­lor Peter Ar­gyle, the chair­man of Nes­trans, said: “I am de­lighted to wel­come Ian to the Nes­trans Board. “He brings with him a wealth of ex­pe­ri­ence, and im­por­tantly adds to our num­ber of non-coun­cil­lor mem­bers who help pro­mote a range of per­spec­tives around the ta­ble.

“I look for­ward to work­ing with Ian dur­ing his time with us.”
