One of the original board members of Network Rail, group asset management director Peter Henderson, is to step down next year after 10 years with the company.
Henderson joined in 2002 as Network Rail acquired Railtrack. Chief executive David Higgins said his expertise had been invaluable in fixing the broken railway that was inherited from Railtrack.
Network Rail said Henderson decided to leave “to pursue other interests”. The search for a new asset management director will start shortly.
