Who is be­hind Heathrow South­ern Rail­way?

Rail (UK) - - Network -

Heathrow South­ern Rail­way’s com­pany board reads like a Who’s Who of former rail in­dus­try lead­ers.

Chair­ing the board is Baroness Jo Valen­tine, who re­tired last year as chief ex­ec­u­tive of the busi­ness group Lon­don First.

Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor Steven Costello has worked on many of the UK’s large in­fra­struc­ture projects.

Chris Stokes was a di­rec­tor of the Strate­gic Rail Au­thor­ity dur­ing the early stages of fran­chis­ing and more re­cently chaired Agility Trains, the joint ven­ture sup­ply­ing new Hi­tachi fleets to the Great West­ern and East Coast lines.

John O’Brien was the Gov­ern­ment’s Fran­chis­ing Di­rec­tor, and held nu­mer­ous other in­dus­try roles.

And former GNER Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Christo­pher Gar­nett and Mark Bo­s­tock are well-known in­dus­try fig­ures.
