Background

Nick spent 26 years as a career railwayman having joined British Rail from School in 1976. During this period the industry went through the privatisation process and Nick became part of the Board for the newly privatised Thames Trains company.

From 1999 until 2002 Nick held the position of Chief Executive at National Rail Enquiries, a period in which NRES went from being the only part of the industry subject to regulatory enforcement to being voted Rail Business of the Year for 2001.

Areas of Expertise

In August 2002 Nick left the rail industry to join the Civil Service and become Chief Executive at Transport Direct. His first day at work coincided with the delivery of the responses to the ITT for the Design, Build and Operation of the portal. The last year was a constant battle against time to try and ensure that the portal could be built prior to the close of 2003. This year the battle has been to integrate the portal with 12 external journey planners, 3 retailers and a host of real-time and other information systems. The portal soft launched on July 12th and is planned for full launch during November.

Outside work his interests revolve around sport (a worried Leeds fan and a vice president at Bracknell rugby club), family (a daughter of 20 and a son of nearly 18) and trying to keep in touch with as many friends and colleagues as possible.
