Railtrack brings in technical expertise at senior level

RAILTRACK THIS week put two civil engineers in new senior posts in response to criticism of a lack of technical expertise among its top management.

The move is part of a manangement reshuffle following last week's shock resignation of chief executive Gerald Corbett and his replacement by finance director Steve Marshall.

The reshuffle also signals Railtrack's intention to get a stronger grip on its maintenance and renewal work.

One of the new posts is that of chief engineer which goes to chartered civil engineer Andrew McNaughton, former director of Railtrack's Great Western Zone.

Other changes include the switching of executive director and chartered engineer Richard Middleton to the new role of technical director.

Chief operating officer Jonson Cox takes on the role of asset maintenance director with responsibility for track maintenance and relationships with contractors.
