Paul Plummer, Rail Delivery Group (RDG) chief executive, has confirmed his intention to retire this autumn.
The search for Paul’s successor has already begun and he will stay in his role until this person is identified.
Paul Plummer, chief executive of RDG, said:
“This is a pivotal year both for the rail industry and the RDG, which has a challenging and important role to play in shaping the future. Over the next few months, I will continue playing a role in ensuring Britain has the railway is needs for the decades ahead – a key goal for the ongoing Williams Review – and in preparing the RDG for the next stage in its evolution. Nevertheless, the time is right to confirm my plans for the future so that the search for my successor can begin.”
