Diamond Rail Services appoints new Head of Projects

Growing Rail delivery partner, Diamond Rail Services has appointed a new Head of Projects, Sara Pierrepont, as part of its drive to tighten quality management processes and prepare for a major turnkey fleet refurbishment programme in the new year.

Sara’s appointment comes at a time of growth for Sheffield-based Diamond Rail, which recently expanded its portfolio of interior, asset, heritage and engineering services. She will manage its latest fleet refurbishment programme (due to begin in February 2023), as well as helping to further improve project and quality management processes.

With 25 years of industry experience and a background in manufacturing, fabrication and project management, Sara is already making a significant contribution to Diamond Rail’s team and will support its continued growth.


Sara commented: “I’m very excited to join the Diamond Rail Services team and flattered that they approached me. Those who know Business Development Director Jenny Dempsey will agree that she’s a very determined professional and usually gets what she wants. But it was when I met the rest of the team I was sold.

“Their business model, which champions people and the customer, aligns nicely with my aspirations and way of working. It’s a format which is proven to get results, motivate and build strong relationships, and will secure repeat business and retain experienced & valuable employees.

“Having watched Diamond Rail Services go from strength to strength over the last few years and seen how their portfolio has evolved, I’m looking forward to supporting them in this next phase of their unlimited progression.”

In the longer term, Sara’s expertise will enable Diamond Rail to extend its service offering. Its sister company CTL Seal employs over 100 coded welders – and, with Sara’s help, is working towards its BS EN 15085 welding certification.

Business Development Director Jenny Dempsey added: “I am thrilled to have Sara on board; two weeks in, she is already adding value and is making a great contribution to the team. I am also learning so much from Sara and I am genuinely excited about what Diamond’s future holds.”
