Gordon Wakeford, Managing Director, Mobility Division for Siemens plc, has been appointed interim industry chairman of the Rail Supply Group (RSG).
He replaces former co-chairman Terence Watson, who stepped down from the role last month amid allegations of corruption during his time at Alstom (RAIL 799).
Wakeford is also Chairman of the Railway Industry Association, which represents UK-based suppliers to the world’s railways.
“By working with the RSG council, in partnership with UK Government, my first task will be to ensure that we maintain the momentum achieved post the launch of our Fast Track to the Future strategy,” he said.
