Britain’s not-for-profit railway infrastructure company, Network Rail, announced today that David Higgins, currently CEO of the Olympic Delivery Authority, will become the company’s CEO from 1 February 2011. Explaining why he had accepted the new job David Higgins said, It has been a privilege to lead the ODA over the last five years and I am leaving with the Olympic Park on time, within budget and with the finish line in sight. Looking forward, Network Rail is one of the most important companies in the UK – an efficient railway underpins a modern economy. Maybe our Polish ministry friends should be reminded of this simple fact?
