Transport for London’s chief financial officer, Simon Kilonback, has made the decision to move on after being a part of the organisation for 12 years.
Simon is to take on a role as the CFO at G.Network, a full-fibre broadband provider which focuses on London.
Simon started at TfL as the group treasurer in 2009 before becoming the director of corporate finance and then, in 2017, CFO.
TfL says he played a key role in bringing it to the “cusp of financial sustainability” before the pandemic. Since then, he has pushed to make it even more efficient and was critical in stabilising TfL’s finances during the pandemic.
Andy Byford, London’s transport commissioner, said: “The contribution of the CFO to organisations like TfL often goes without fanfare. But the challenges we have faced as an organisation and the absolute centrality of efficiency within our business have meant that Simon’s phenomenal contribution has been plain for all to see.
“He leaves TfL a more efficient and effective organisation than ever before and has put in the most remarkable of shifts to stabilise TfL through the ravages of the pandemic and to set us on a path to future financial sustainability. His work will leave a lasting important legacy from which we will continue to build, and we thank him for everything he has done.”
