Former MD of Network Rail’s national supply chain joins Turner & Townsend

Global consultancy business Turner & Townsend has appointed the former Managing Director of Network Rail’s national supply chain as part of the senior management team in the UK.

Nick Elliott MBE, a former Director-General of the UK Vaccine Taskforce (VTF), has been appointed to further enhance the company’s programme manager capability.

Patricia Moore, UK Managing Director, said: “Nick has an incredible track record in world-class programme management and we are delighted to welcome him. His experience in delivering an exemplar in programme management through the Vaccine Taskforce will enable us to draw great parallels and apply this to the UK’s most significant programmes.

“Nick joins at a time when infrastructure investment is front and centre of the country’s plans to build back better. To deliver successfully, the industry needs to transform its approach to major programmes and we are proud to work on initiatives such as the Construction Playbook and the forthcoming IPA Routemap that are driving this change.”

Director Nick Elliott MBE said: “Turner & Townsend has a clear ambition to be the go-to consultancy for programme management globally. I am looking forward to bringing my experience to bear and helping to shape a more robust and capable industry that is ready for successful delivery.”
