Jon brings over 15 years’ rail experience, having held senior operational roles at Network Rail, Govia Thameslink Railway and Abellio as well as delivering successful national projects as a consultant in the sector.

On his appointment, Jon said: “CrossCountry is unique in that it spans the length and breadth of Great Britain, connecting hundreds of towns and cities on the way. I am looking forward to working with Tom and the people at CrossCountry to build a future-proof timetable and delivery strategy that supports the country’s economic recovery and exceeds customers’ expectations.”
