As Regional Directors, John and Nick will take full responsibility for the operational and financial performance of the region.
John has over 30 years’ experience in the rail industry, having assumed numerous operational roles for West Midlands Trains and Virgin Trains as well as having delivered successful projects in rail consultancies before joining CrossCountry in May 2020 as Regional Director for West Midlands and North West.

On his appointment Nick added: “I’m looking forward to building on the strong relationships John has already fostered as well as forging new ones. It is a great opportunity for me to expand my knowledge in other areas, building upon my strong operational experience.”

John said: “The challenges that CrossCountry faces differ from region to region. I am looking forward to getting to know the East Midlands and East Anglia region in more depth to ensure that we deliver a robust and customer-centric service.”
