We are joined by John Smith who is one of the most recognisable names in the British railway industry. John has recently been appointed CEO of Hector Rail, a pan European freight operator, which has recently acquired GB Railfreight (GBRf) from Europorte. John founded GBRf in 1999 and has build one of the UK’s most successful FOCs, though he still oversee’s GBRf, he now is challenges to build Hector Rail across Europe, forming new networks and partnerships.

We shall not only hear about the success of GBRf, but of the future pan-European adventure now facing John and Hector Rail.

Promises to be a highlight of the academic year and we could not be joined by a more suitable speaker for our last event of the year.

Mixed audience, from many different subject areas. All welcomed to come.

About the CURC :

Founded in 1911 from the Cambridge University branch of The Railway Club, Cambridge University Railway Club (CURC) is the second oldest railway enthusiast club in the world! The CURC arranges an event in Cambridge most weeks during Full Term, most often a presentation by an invited speaker, almost always a key professional from the rail industry, on a specific subject. The club is not just train talk, but about how the railway works. We have a celebrated history of CURC alumni who now work in the railway industry, with some at quite senior levels.

Membership for students costs £10 per year or £25 for life membership. We charge £3 at the door for non-members, upon your third entry to a talk (first two talks are free). So come and try us out for free, gain exclusive access to key railway professionals and depots and you might just want to become a member! (We won’t tell anyone you are ;) )

This talk is part of the Cambridge University Railway Club series.
