Bombardier Transportation UK appoints new boss

Noel Travers has been appointed as the new managing director and head of projects for Bombardier Transportation UK.

Travers takes the place of Francis Paonessa who is joining Network Rail as the organisation’s head of infrastructure projects.

Bombardier has said that Peter Doolin, who joined the company in 2010 as senior director for Multiple Unit projects, will retain responsibility as head of projects for Crossrail and London Underground.

Both appointments report directly to Laurent Troger, president, Western Europe, Middle East and Africa Division.

Troger said: “These appointments endorse the excellent and experienced management team that we have in place in the UK and will continue to ensure our total focus on project delivery, quality and customer satisfaction.”
