A railway fit for the future

Imperial Business Insights Series lecture with Richard Parry-Jones, Chairman, Network Rail.

Railways do not only move people and freight, they also generate and spread prosperity - they can create jobs, open up new markets and support the growth of a new balanced economy. Today's economic environment has placed the railway once again at the heart of the debate about Britain's future.

Richard has extensive experience of the automobile and engineering industry having joined Ford Motor Company as an apprentice before working in multiple disciplines around the world, eventually becoming Group Vice President of Global Product Devel opment and Chief Technical Officer. He has been recognised for his leadership of the development and introduction of breakthrough technologies in vehicle safety and sustainability. He is a fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering, the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and the Royal Society of Statistical Science. Richard has been awarded a CBE for his services to the automobile industry.
