Network Rail’s new boss to take up post mid-August

Andrew haines 3to2

Network Rail’s new chief executive Andrew Haines is to take up his post on August 14.

Current chief executive Mark Carne will officially retire the day before, but continue working for the body until early September, finishing off his work on the CP6 (Control Period 6 – 2019 to 2024) funding settlement.

Haines, who is currently Civil Aviation Authority chief executive, was appointed in May.

Meanwhile, the former boss of cruise firm Cunard and senior director at British Airways, David Noyes, is to join Network Rail’s board as a non-executive director. He will replace Michael O’Higgins, who is leaving the board at the end of August.

Network Rail chair Sir Peter Hendy said: “Having someone with David’s background and experience, particularly in customer services and managing devolved businesses, will be a great asset to the Board as Network Rail continues its transformation journey into a more customer focussed, devolved group of businesses.”
