Network Rail Telecom (NRT) has joined forces with Network Rail’s IT Services division, to become a combined team, IT and Telecom (IT & T) Services.
Bringing together these two technology-rich disciplines with complimentary capabilities is a natural fit and will allow greater collaboration within the organisation. It is hoped that it will enable the team to deliver a simpler and more efficient suite of technology solutions and associated innovation.
Leading the new team is Simon Goodman, chief information officer.
Simon Atterwell, director of telecoms, is retiring in March 2023 after eight years with Network Rail. He’ll continue to support the transition to IT & T Services until then, but is stepping back from the day to day running of telecoms. Brian Hatfield, a long-time member of Simon’s leadership team and currently responsible for the business service and development, will step in as interim director of telecoms.
