My first day in the Rail Industry was in 2005 and I was hooked from that first day.
A giant, state run business, privatised and divided into TOCS and Track owners, the Franchising mechanism, Public sector oversight and control – complications and challenges I thrive on!
Having worked for 3 TOCS and the DfT I am in a position to offer commercial advice, project delivery, benefits realisation, high level dispute negotiations and settlement with other TOCS, DFT and NR.
Projects undertaken to date include:
Maximise financial returns for a TOC having lost their franchise or having secured a limited franchise extension.
Strategic Farebox reviews to maximise revenues including plans to develop market share and drive ‘channel shift’ to lower cost platforms.
Strategy and Project delivery of cost-out, cost-down exercises.
Project delivery of committed obligations including delivery of new websites, FTM’s, gate-line barriers, e-ticketing including smart cards (ITSO and c-EMV) and mobile Apps.
Claims negotiations on disputes with DfT, NR and TLP.
Agree an end-to-end CP5 settlement with DfT.
Negotiations with TOCS to resolve franchise contractual issues.
