Go-Ahead director appointments
The Go-Ahead Group has made two new appointments: Enrique Fernandez will be the organisation’s IT and strategy director and Jeremy Marshall its procurement director.
Enrique has extensive programme strategy and IT experience from his time at Marks and Spencer and Tesco. He joined Go-Ahead in 2012 as its strategy and programme director. His new remit will be to oversee all IT infrastructure and software development as well as leading future strategy programmes for the group.
He said: “Go-Ahead is already leading the field in the transport sector in smartcard and new technology, part of my role will be to ensure that we maintain our edge as a forward-looking and innovative company.”
Jeremy has worked in the transport industry for 20 years after starting as a London Underground graduate trainee. He joined Go-Ahead in 2006 from rail operating company Southeastern and will be responsible for the contracts and supply chains across all Go-Ahead’s subsidiary companies.
He said: "Go-Ahead has a history of strong relationships with business partners and suppliers and we will continue to embed our ethical procurement policies across all our bus and rail operations.”
Both roles report to group finance director, Keith Down, who welcomed the new appointments saying:
“Enrique and Jeremy both have a wealth of experience and their leadership in their respective areas of the business will ensure that we continue to innovate and work in collaboration with industry and business partners and be responsive to our customers’ needs.”
