Managing Director, Waxwing Engineering
I have a broad background in rail system engineering, project management, maintenance management, standardisation & approvals, product introduction.
I can advise companies wishing to innovate and grow their business into the rail sector, which has doubled in size in the last 20 years in the UK, and which is forecast to continue growing, improving its quality and reliability. The UK passenger operators are in the process of introducing 7000 new vehicles (50% of the current fleet size), which will require a step-change in skills, support technology and new techniques to maintain. I have extensive experience in rail system engineering, both vehicles and infrastructure, standardisation and approvals processes, project management and engineering, working with regulatory bodies, government departments. I have experience of maintenance management, development of quality, safety and environmental management systems; I have strong stakeholder engagement skills.
