Chiltern welcomes three new directors

Chiltern Railways has bolstered its executive team with three new appointments.

Tony Baxter has joined as Operations Director and has extensive experience in several sectors. His most recent appointment was at Northern Trains, where he was regional director for the Yorkshire and Humberside region.

In this role, Baxter was responsible for the train and station operations teams and in his new role, he will be responsible for Chiltern’s timetable planning, performance, operational delivery and station management across its network which includes London Marylebone terminus in central London. Prior to his role at Northern Trains, Baxter spent 15 years at Royal Mail, including as Regional Operations Director.

Alongside Baxter’s appointment, Andy Camp has joined Chiltern as the permanent commercial and customer strategy director. Camp will be responsible for delivering the commercial and customer strategies for the operator across its network which includes long distance services to Birmingham and commuter routes outside of London.

Camp has worked in the rail industry for 10 years, previously as commercial director at West Midlands Trains and Greater Anglia. Within his role of delivering on the company’s commercial strategies will be to modernise the customer experience and station portfolio.

Lastly, Tim Sayer has joined Chiltern as the engineering and safety director. Sayer will be instrumental in Chiltern’s efforts to modernise its fleet by making the case for new, low or zero emission trains. Sayer is no stranger to the rail industry as he has worked in various franchising groups for over twenty years including a stint at Chiltern early in his career between 2006 and 2009.

Chiltern recently revealed its plans to decarbonise its fleet by 2030 with its Right Route 2030 plan, which Sayer will now be taking a key role in overseeing.

Richard Allan, managing director of Chiltern Railways, said: “I am delighted that Tony, Tim and Andy have joined Chiltern and already they are making a significant contribution to the performance of the organisation as experienced Directors and leaders in their respective functions. 

“This is a critical period for Chiltern as we push for sustainable growth in the number of customers using our services and make the case to replace a fleet of trains with the highest average age in Britain with new trains.
