Interserve targets further growth with new director

Interserve has appointed former Balfour Beatty Rail director Kevin Murgatroyd as its new sector director for transport. His new role will see him working alongside Interserve's senior management team to support the continued growth of its transport support services business. Transport is a key area of growth for Interserve, which holds accounts with some of the sector's largest organisations including Network Rail and London Underground.

Murgatroyd brings with him over 20 years of experience managing diverse workforces and multi-site operations across the transport industry. For the past nine years, he has been part of Balfour Beatty Rail's executive team, latterly as director and general manager of Balfour Beatty's rail plant and rail civils divisions, which saw him running long-term frameworks with London Underground and Network Rail.

Guy Bruce, managing director at Interserve, said: “The UK transport industry is going through a period of dramatic change at present, with passenger numbers set to rise at a remarkable rate. Never has it been more important for transport operators to find efficiencies in how they manage their stock and their facilities, and we are perfectly placed to help them do this. Transport is an important sector for us and Kevin brings with him a wealth of industry experience. His vast knowledge and expertise will be invaluable in helping our transport clients to meet the challenges and opportunities ahead.”

Kevin Murgatroyd said: “I've spent my whole career working in transport and I wanted to join a company that shares my passion for the industry. Interserve is clearly committed to its transport division and is certainly going places in this sector - I'm delighted to be joining the team at a time when there are such fantastic opportunities for further growth and success.”
