Lucy comes to the Rail Alliance with a broad and varied railway background. She has worked in the rail sector for a number of years working for manufacturing companies on both the infrastructure and rolling stock sides of the market and has focused specifically on export and domestic sales, marketing and business development.
Lucy also considers herself to have been extremely lucky to have been able to apply her linguistic skills whilst working in rail, from acting as interpreter at a product launch in the UK embassy in Madrid to interpreting the snag list for a bogie drop in France; her work has afforded her a wide range of experiences.
Lucy is based in Sheffield and will be looking to develop the Rail Alliance membership in the North East and North West with a view to maximising the potential of the rail sector SME base in the North. Additionally, Lucy will be developing the Rail Alliance’s relationship with the UK’s universities in general and the Rail Research UK Association (RRUKA) in particular (see www.rruka.org.uk if you would like to find out more about UK-based rail research programmes, capability and projects).
