South Western Railway picks new COO

South Western Railway (SWR) has said Stuart Meek will soon join its leadership team as Chief Operating Officer.

His appointment follows the retirement of Mike Houghton earlier this year.

Stuart is moving from the Go-Ahead Group where he was its Operations Director for the past three years. Before this, he spent a number of years in leadership roles in GTR, including as Train Services Director for Southern Rail and five years at TfL in a range of operational leadership positions on the Underground.


Stuart starts in the post in August.

He said: “I feel privileged to be joining the great team at South Western Railway to serve its customers and communities and I am really looking forward to meeting my new colleagues across the network. I am joining at an exciting time as we work to introduce the Arterio fleet and continue to transform our customers’ journeys.”

Claire Mann, SWR’s managing director said: “I know Stuart will be a great addition to the leadership of our business and am very much looking forward to him joining the team.”
