Keith Ludeman joins the board of Network Rail Consulting

16 November 2012

Network Rail Consulting, the international consultancy subsiduary of Network Rail, welcomes Keith Ludeman, one of Britain’s top transport business leaders, to its board.


We created Network Rail Consulting as part of a wider reform agenda which has seen a more devolved group company structure to drive further efficiencies and demonstrate value through market competition.

Network Rail Consulting aims to harness the vast range of skills and experience available within Network Rail to demonstrate British expertise overseas and be an international ambassador for Britain’s rail industry. It will also help channel innovation back into our core business, helping deliver a better value railway for Britain.

Operating outside the UK, Network Rail Consulting offers consultancy services across the full spectrum of Network Rail’s expertise:

  • Advisory
  • Strategic planning
  • Asset management
  • Operations and maintenance
  • Capital projects
