With the company’s Rail Vehicle Manufacturing Facility in Newton Aycliffe becoming fully operational later this year, Hitachi Rail Europe’s focus is shifting towards delivering trains to existing UK customers and driving new European sales.
Karen comes to Hitachi Rail Europe from East Coast Trains where she spent five years as Managing Director. Karen will lead the rapid expansion of the company. This will involve delivering and maintaining existing orders for Class 800/801 Trains and AT200 Trains; as well as continuing to expand the business to attract new orders for rolling stock, ETCS and traffic management systems.
On joining HRE, Karen said:
“It is an exciting time to be joining such an innovative organization like Hitachi Rail Europe. I was attracted to Hitachi by its excellent record of customer delivery as exemplified by the 395 Javelin fleet. I look forward to bringing into service a new generation of trains, which will deliver a step change in the experience for passengers and greater reliability for operators
