Network Rail Infrastructure Projects Southern regional director Nick Elliott has been named managing director of the organisation’s national supply chain.
Mr Elliott willl be replaced by Scotland and North-east counterpart Roger Dickinson in a move that was confirmed to Network Rail staff last Thursday.
Network Rail confirmed that a replacement for Mr Dickinson had not been announced yet.
Network Rail finance and commercial director David McLoughlin is also understood to be leaving his role; however, Network Rail declined to comment on this.
The moves follow the announcements this month of high-profile exits of Sir David Higgins and Simon Kirby from Network Rail to High Speed 2.
