GB Railfreight’s Duncan Clark Joins Rail Freight Group’s Board of Directors
GB Railfreight (GBRf) announces that Duncan Clark, our Director of Strategic Development, has been appointed to the Rail Freight Group (RFG) Board of Directors.
Duncan has a wealth of experience of the rail freight sector. He has been with GBRf since 2015 and looks after GBRf's network capacity, business performance, major projects, business implantation, business improvement, sales, sales strategy, and external communications. Before joining GBRf he spent twelve months as Programme Director in the Digital Railway at Network Rail and before that was NR’s General Manager of Freight.
On his new position, Duncan said:
“I am honoured to have been appointed to this position and there can be no more important time for the voice of the rail freight sector to be strongly represented. The next Control Period, which Network Rail is in the process of agreeing with the Government, could be pivotal for the future competitiveness of rail freight. The RFG must ensure that it puts across the views of the sector and that it achieves the outcomes that will be best for all who operate on the railways.”
GBRf’s Managing Director, John Smith, said:
“Duncan is a worthy addition to the board and will bring all his extensive experience and no-nonsense approach to the RFG so that the group is as effective as it can be. We are extremely lucky to have him here at GBRf, and it is great to see that the rest of the industry will soon be able to benefit from his insights.
RFG is the leading representative body for rail freight in the UK, with a membership which includes some of the biggest names in logistics along with many smaller companies, all of which contribute to the success of rail freight. They are playing a vital role in the development of CP6, the next Network Rail funding period which will run from 2019-24, and GBRf is pleased to be able to contribute to this work.
