Britain’s largest long-distance operator, CrossCountry, has announced the appointment of Jo Davey as Industry Projects and Planning Director.
Jo joined CrossCountry in 2017 as Head of Track Access & Possession Strategy, and later Head of Planning, where she was responsible for timetable development and major possessions including Derby remodelling and blockades at Oxford and Bristol. She has also represented the business at industry level, working closely with the Great British Railways Transition Team, on the Whole Industry Strategic Plan, the long-term strategy for the railway, including decarbonisation.
Prior to CrossCountry, Jo has held numerous management positions across the industry at National Express, Great Western Railway and South Western.
Her appointment marks the business’ move to further strengthen its presence as a nationwide operator and ensure it not only meets but exceeds customers’ expectations.
With full responsibility for the business’ future timetable and corporate governance and risk, Jo will play a central role in developing our timetable and supporting how we evolve our business.
On her appointment, Jo said: “As a long-distance operator, CrossCountry is well placed to support the country’s economic recovery. I am looking forward to working with the wider Executive team so that we not only meet existing customers’ expectations, but also importantly adapt for the future.”
Tom Joyner, Managing Director at CrossCountry added: “The railway is undergoing unprecedented change, which is necessary so that we emerge as a viable sector. Jo brings significant operational experience and leadership to CrossCountry, which will be so important as we evolve our business to meet our customers’ needs.
