Games transport chief to take the Interfleet helm
DERBY rail consultancy Interfleet Technology has appointed a new managing director following the retirement of David Rollin after almost 20 years in the driving seat.
The incoming Richard George will take up the position at the end of February 2013.
Previously, Mr George was director of transport at the London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, where he was responsible for the delivery of the transport logistics.
Mr Rollin took up his position at Interfleet Technology in 1994.

The management buyout of the operation from British Rail was completed two years later.
Under the direction of Mr Rollin, the company grew from a 99-employee Derby-based operation to a leader in the global rail industry.
A spokesman for Interfleet said: "In handing the reins over to Richard, the company is confident that it is investing in someone who will carry on the great reputation that Interfleet has established worldwide.
"This next chapter in Interfleet's development will be an exciting time for both clients and staff, especially as the new ownership of SNC-Lavalin can open up even more opportunities for everyone associated with the company."
The announcement comes a year on from the successful acquisition of Interfleet by Canadian engineering and construction group SNC-Lavalin.
Interfleet Technology has more than 20 offices around the world and employs in excess of 650 staff, working on all types of rail engineering projects.
