 Commenting on the appointment, Alison Munro, Chair of the National College for High Speed Rail, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Chris who brings strong business expertise and support for the college. His previous experience along with his passion to drive positive change across business and the construction and infrastructure industries will be invaluable to our growth and development programme. With our work underway to boost the talent pipeline that is needed for the UK’s high speed rail, engineering and infrastructure sectors, this is the right time and an exciting time to bring Chris on board.”
