Porterbrook revamps communications team

Porterbrook, the rolling stock owner and asset manager, today announced a change to the business communications team which will help support the needs of customers and tomorrow's railway.

James McGowan, currently Director of Public Affairs, will take up the new position of Director of Corporate Affairs. He will continue to report directly to Mary Grant, CEO.

James will lead a dedicated team focusing on communications and policy as well as public and external affairs supported by incoming and existing colleagues.

"This new corporate affairs role and supporting team will enhance our business engagement with the stakeholder landscape as the rail reform agenda evolves and moves towards a new industry structure. It will also ensure we are best placed to assist government and devolved authority ambitions for the railway and allow us to build on our reputation for partnership, innovation and customer focus. I congratulate James as he prepares to meet the many challenges ahead."
