HS1 Ltd has appointed Dyan Crowther as its new Chief Executive.
 
She will join from Govia Thameslink, where she held the position of Chief Operating Officer and replaces Nicola Shaw, who left HS1 Ltd in May. It is anticipated that she will formally join the business in January 2017.
 
She comes with significant sector experience spanning 30 years and includes senior roles at Network Rail, British Rail and Railtrack.
 
Dyan Crowther commented: “I am delighted to be taking on this role. High Speed 1 is the UK’s only high speed line which has transformed rail travel through Kent and into the continent. Its growth and performance in the last 9 years are testament to its success and I look forward to leading the business and helping continue this success for customers and passengers alike.”
 
Rob Holden, Chairman and acting CEO of HS1 Ltd added: “As someone who joined the rail industry as a graduate, Dyan’s experience made her an extremely strong candidate. She has a strategic understanding of HS1 as a business and a vision to take it forward. We are looking forward to welcoming her here properly at the start of our tenth anniversary year.”
