Managing Director

ScotRail Alliance

Alex joined ScotRail Alliance as Managing Director in June 2017, and he is currently leading the delivery of Scotland’s Railway through the ScotRail Alliance, a unique and industry-leading partnership between Abellio ScotRail and Network Rail Scotland.

Alex previously worked as Managing Director at Arriva Rail North, where his industry experience positioned him well to implement improvements that drove excellence and delivered greater satisfaction for customers and stakeholders across the Northern network.

Having spent his early career as a consultant for Halcrow Fox, Alex worked with the Office of Rail Regulation before joining the Go-Ahead Group in 2005 as Strategic Planning Manager and, in 2007, as Commercial Director at London Midland, and finally, as Managing Director of Rail Development. In that particular role, Alex sat on the Executive Committee and led the development and delivery of Go-Ahead’s rail strategy including all franchise bidding activity.

“Equality, Diversity and Inclusion is something I am passionate about as an individual and as the leader of ScotRail Alliance. I wanted to join this network to promote that EDI is good for business and discuss best practice with other business leaders.”
