Chiltern Railways welcome three new members to its Director team

Chiltern Railways is pleased to announce three new additions to the Executive team.  

Tony Baxter has joined Chiltern as Operations Director. Tony has extensive experience as an operational leader in several sectors, most recently at Northern Trains, where he was the Regional Director for Yorkshire and Humberside. During this time, he was responsible for the train and station operations teams as well as leading external stakeholder relations for the region. Tony will be responsible for Chiltern’s timetable planning, performance, operational delivery, and station management. Tony brings a wealth of experience to the role, having been Regional Operations Director at Royal Mail as part of a fifteen-year career at the company. Tony is also a trustee for St. Luke’s Cheshire Hospice, leading income generation for the charity, which supports people with life limiting illnesses and end of life care in the region.  

Andy Camp has joined Chiltern as the permanent Commercial & Customer Strategy Director, and is responsible delivering Chiltern’s commercial and customer strategies, with key priorities including modernising Chiltern’s station portfolio and customer experience, while delivering delivering sustainable growth by attracting more customers to the network. Andy has worked in the rail industry for ten years, having been Commercial Director at West Midlands Trains and previously Greater Anglia, and prior to joining rail he worked in various industries in senior commercial roles.  

Tim Sayer joins Chiltern as Engineering and Safety Director. His key duties include leading the plan to modernise Chiltern’s trains by making the case for new, low or zero emission trains. As well as working for various franchise owning groups over twenty years on the railway, Tim spent part of his early career at Chiltern from 2006 to 2009, so returns to a familiar environment as he leads on Chiltern’s ambitious Right Route 2030 vision to deliver a modernised and decarbonised train fleet, in addition to maintaining Chiltern’s culture of strong operational and personal safety.  

Richard Allan, Managing Director of Chiltern Railways, said:  

“I am delighted that Tony, Tim and Andy have joined Chiltern and already they are making a significant contribution to the performance of the organisation as experienced Directors and leaders in their respective functions.  

“This is a critical period for Chiltern as we push for sustainable growth in the number of customers using our services and make the case to replace a fleet of trains with the highest average age in Britain with new trains. 

“We are determined to achieve our vision of an easier, greener and better service for our customers and colleagues by making our 2030 vision a reality.”
