Abellio appoints managing director to run trains between Norwich, Cambridge and London

The newly appointed managing director of the company set to run the train line between Norwich, Cambridge and London has said he is committed to improving customer service, the condition of stations and operational performance.

Abellio Greater Anglia Ltd yesterday appointed its new executive team for the Greater Anglia franchise which begins operations next month.

Ruud Haket, who led the bid for the franchise, has been appointed as managing director.

He said: 'I am delighted to be able to publish the new executive team for Greater Anglia. We are all committed to delivering the proposals made within the bid and listening to the requirements of our customers, stakeholders and employees many of whom I have met during recent roadshows across the region. Although a short franchise Greater Anglia will deliver improvements in customer service, station condition and operational performance.

'I have made a few new appointments to the team which sit alongside existing directors running the franchise today. Greater Anglia is the first franchise to obtain responsibility for the stations within the franchise and for this reason I have appointed an asset management director. We have brought back the role of commercial director to reflect the commitment to growth and investment in marketing. The projects director appointment is also new and will take the lead on our Olympic planning and delivery and working with the Crossrail team.
