Network Rail Consulting, a wholly owned subsidiary of Network Rail – the owner and operator of Britain’s railway infrastructure, consolidates on the successes of its operations in North America and opens a Canadian subsidiary headquartered in Toronto.
Nigel Ash, managing director of Network Rail Consulting says: “I am pleased to announce the opening of our new Canadian subsidiary. Over the last 12 months we have carried a number of consultancy assignments and having a local office will us allow to provide better and more responsive services to our existing clients as well as pursue new opportunities. Our approach is to have a blend of local Canadian resources together with Network Rail staff from our parent company.”
To lead this new operation in Canada, Network Rail Consulting has appointed a local Canadian, Susanne M Manaigre as vice president. Susanne will report to Ron Hartman, president, North America.
Commenting on her appointment, Susanne said: “Joining Network Rail Consulting at the beginning of this period of growth and expansion is exciting; allowing me many opportunities to share my operational knowledge.”
Ron Hartman, president, North America said: “I am delighted to welcome Susanne to our North American team. Having spent her career in the Canadian rail market, she brings a wealth of experience and deep understanding of it. As we continue our expansion trajectory, Susanne will provide our growing client list with real-world perspective of what it takes to protect and improve railroad assets and their operation.”
Susanne is an energetic and solutions-oriented rail operations strategist and brings years of leadership success to Network Rail Consulting. Susanne’s career in the railways spans 30 years with her proven leadership knowledge gained as chief of operations for GO Transit/Metrolinx, the regional public transport system in Southern Ontario carrying in excess of 69 million passengers a year in an extensive network of train and bus services.
