I have over 20 years’ experience of providing commercial and financial advice and due diligence across many aspects of transport, in particular rail. This has included providing support on transactions or solving complex commercial challenges for infrastructure owners, operators and investors, governments, regulators, freight and passenger train operators and rolling stock leasing companies.
My experience spans all elements of the rail sector giving me an in depth understanding of the complex interfaces and the operational and commercial environment in which it operates, along with an appreciation of the various stakeholder perspectives and incentives. My experience also covers other aspects of transport including ports, airports, and busses, as well as an appreciation of the important interactions between modes of transport.
I have a passion for transport, adding value and solving problems that clients face, ensuring passengers and users are at the heart of thinking. I was involved in the commercial design of the West Coast Partnership, which included a number of unique aspects to enable flexibility and partnership working. I was an integral part of the hugely important Williams Rail Review providing commercial advice in respect of its considerations of new industry structures and commercial models.
Outside work, my time is taken up by family (mainly running around after my two boys!), football and keeping fit when I can.
