Alex began his career as a senior consultant for Halcrow Fox providing policy, financial and economic advice to transport operators in UK rail franchise bidding. From there he went to ORR before joining the Go-Ahead Group in 2005. Working in a number of roles including as Commercial Director for London Midland and MD on Rail Development, as a member of Go-Ahead’s Executive Committee he worked on the development and delivery of their 5 year rail strategy including all their franchise bidding activity.
Alex's wealth of experience was acknowledged by Northern Rail when they appointed him MD as they developed all aspects of their business, experience which will now benefit Arriva as they take on the Northern operation.
FoGS take this opportunity to wish Alex every success in his new role and look forward to continue working with him in developing new projects alongside the new operator.
