He has 15 years experience in the industry, having also held senior positions with Midland Mainline and Eurostar.

Tim said: “I am hugely excited at being asked to lead East Midlands Trains. We’ll have a tremendous opportunity when Eurostar services start sharing our terminus at St Pancras. We’ll work with the towns and cities we serve to promote easy access to and from Europe.”
