Network Rail chief executive speaks at AGM

28 Apr 2019

Network Rail chief executive Andrew Haines will be the guest speaker at the Cotswold Line Promotion Group's 2019 Annual General Meeting in Moreton-in-Marsh on Saturday, May 11.

Mr Haines is a former managing director of the rail division of First Group, the owner of Cotswold Line train operator Great Western Railway, and was the chief executive of the Civil Aviation Authority from 2009 until he joined Network Rail last year.
