Network Rail has a critical role in the railway industry and the whole British economy, by facilitating economic growth and enabling job creation.

I am delighted to be asked to chair the Board and help it, the executive team and the whole organisation fulfil Network Rail's full potential.

I am looking forward to working with Mark Carne as he takes the organisation forward.

– Sir Peter Hendy
