GB Railfreight is delighted to announce the appointment of David Golding as Asset Director. David started officially his new role on 14 September.
David does not have the traditional rail background having served in the British Army for 23 years as an engineering officer that culminated in 2008 with a job that put him in charge of the military logistics supply chain and equipment support, maintenance and engineering organisation in Iraq during combat operations in Basra.
His career in the business world has included supply chain, operations and continuous improvement director roles with British Sugar and The Silver Spoon Company, both part of the AB Foods conglomerate, before his last appointment as the Group Corporate Services Director with the Go-Ahead Group.
Outside of work, David is married with two teenage boys and the family are very active, spending their free time skiing, walking, and going for long bike rides.
John Smith, Managing Director of GB Railfreight, said:
“A big GBRf welcome to David Golding. We are delighted to have him joining our team and I can’t wait to work with him.
“We continue to grow our business, despite the economic uncertainty. We are also attracting top talent from beyond the rail industry which demonstrates the good work we are doing. We are at the cutting edge of the industry and the appointment of a new Asset Director will help us improve even more.”
David Golding said:
“It’s a privilege to join GBRf and to become a part of such a successful and growing business. The company has an outstanding reputation in the industry and the team spirit and willingness to do a great job for our customers is evident wherever you look. I look forward to playing my part in the team and helping the business to continue to grow and play an increasingly important role in providing carbon-efficient logistic solutions.”
