This week Porterbrook has welcomed Justin Taylor as our new Head of Passenger Commercial.
Justin joins Porterbrook from Alstom where he was Customer Director for two years, leading the UK sales team, the management of strategic customers and opportunities to retain, identify and win new business.
Before Alstom, Justin worked with FirstGroup for 15 years, the majority of which was spent in the Rail Franchise Bid team leading the procurement and financing of rolling stock.
Stefan Rose, Chief Investment Officer at Porterbrook, said: “I’m delighted to have Justin joining our Porterbrook team. He comes with a wealth of railway industry experience at an important time as passenger numbers are rising back up across the network. Justin’s expertise will be invaluable in our mission to ensure that, through our existing fleets and future new build opportunities, we continue to meet the needs and expectations of operators and passengers.
