Genesee & Wyoming Appoints Network Rail’s Tim Shoveller as CEO of UK/Europe Operations

Genesee & Wyoming Inc. (G&W) has announced the appointment of Tim Shoveller as chief executive officer of its UK/Europe operations. This includes Freightliner, the UK’s leading provider of freight rail, terminal and trucking services; Pentalver, a leading UK container-logistics provider; Freightliner Poland, a freight rail operator in both Poland and Germany; and Rotterdam Rail Feeding, a provider of shunting and rail feeder services in the Netherlands.

With Tim expected to join the company by late summer 2023, G&W’s UK/Europe operations will continue to be led by Interim CEO Becky Lumlock, who is a UK-based operating partner at Brookfield Infrastructure, and Jack Hellmann, who serves as Chairman of G&W’s UK/European operations and is G&W’s global CEO.

Tim Shoveller said: “I am thrilled to join G&W at such a pivotal time for low-carbon rail-freight logistics. My priority is to lead the team to optimise the core business for our customers and to drive growth in new markets in the UK and Europe. I look forward to building on the impressive work that is already underway and fostering innovations that extend our industry leadership in safety, reliability and sustainability.”


Tim, who began his rail industry career in 1992 as a trainee driver/guard at British Rail, comes to G&W after nearly four years at Network Rail, where he led a transformation in the North West Central Route’s operational performance. His distinguished career includes roles as Managing Director of the Rail Division of Stagecoach Group, Managing Director of South West Trains / Network Rail Alliance and Managing Director of East Midlands Trains.

Jack Hellmann said: “Tim’s extensive rail expertise and natural leadership abilities will be a tremendous complement to our operating team who consistently delivers industry-leading safety and service to our intermodal logistics and heavy haul customers. In the UK, where Freightliner provides customers with the only one-stop shop for rail, road and terminal solutions, we look forward to Tim leading our growth strategy as we leverage our significant investments in terminal efficiency and train operations to offer a world-class customer experience.”
