Women in Rail (WR) has appointed a new trustee to its governing Board and a Finance Assistant.
Terri Cave joined WR earlier this year and has been appointed WR Board of Trustees’ Financial Director. She has more than 11 years’ experience in the rail sector and is currently Network Rail Head of Financial Control & Analysis (Group Property).
“I am delighted to be joining the WR Board of Trustees,” commented Terri.
“I truly believe in the goals of the charity and can see the impact that WR has across the industry.
“I am looking forward to being a part of a growing organisation and enabling many more women across the industry to achieve their career goals. Together, we can make a difference and continue the fantastic work that has already been achieved.”
Supporting Terri in the role is D/Gauge Commercial Manager Laura Kelly, who has been appointed WR Finance Assistant.
Laura, who also joined WR this year and has 15 years’ rail experience, said: “I am excited to join WR and will leverage my skills in financial analysis, budgeting and reporting to support the finance function and contribute to the charity’s mission.
“The railway family has played a big part in my career path, supporting me in my continual development, and I will endeavour to encourage more of this positive behaviour in the industry.”
WR was founded in 2012 to improve diversity in the UK rail industry by providing networking opportunities and support, encouraging diversity as a business strategy and developing initiatives to promote rail as an attractive career choice.
Now in its 10th year and with more than 7,500 members worldwide, WR holds regular networking events and development workshops across the UK through its regional groups and runs a successful cross-industry mentoring programme open to both females and males.
WR Chair Marie Daly said: “We warmly welcome Terri and Laura to their respective roles.
“Their financial knowledge and experience will strengthen our team and be of great benefit to WR as we continue to strive for a more gender-balanced and diverse UK rail industry.”
