MacRail Systems appoints a new managing director

Adam Crago has taken up the role of managing director at MacRail Systems, a provider of site access and control room services for the UK rail sector.

Adam’s appointment follows the decision of Tim Westwood, who has been with the business for seven years, to retire this Spring. Tim was managing director of MacRail for three years.

Before this, Adam was the operations director, and has been a part of MacRail for 12 years, starting on the front  line in the control room. In the years that followed he progressed through a number of roles. As Adam undertakes the role of managing director, Tim will be on hand to provide advice and mentorship for the next few months until he retires.


Adam said, “I am very pleased to have been offered this opportunity and I look forward to working with the MacRail team to continue to grow the business. Hopefully, the knowledge that I have gained during my career with MacRail will be invaluable as managing director. I would like to thank Tim for the mentoring and support that he has provided during my career journey.”

Steve Featherstone, chair of MacRail, said, “I would like to thank Tim for his great service to MacRail and wish him well for his retirement. It is great to be chair of a company that values internal talent management and succession planning the way that MacRail does. Adam’s journey from the frontline to managing director is a great example of what is possible when you join a company that cares about its people. I look forward to working with Adam and his team and to helping Adam to be successful in his new role.”

Phil Munnelly, CEO of Munnelly Group, said, “Since purchasing MacRail in 2018, it has been great to see Adam develop in his role, joining the Board of MacRail in 2021 and now assuming the role of managing director. I wish him every success in his new role.”
