Prior to joining the company as operations director in January 2019, Jeff was with Network Rail for 13 years. As DRAM, he led a team of asset managers, engineers and safety professionals and was accountable for the safety and performance of the route’s infrastructure – some 1,500 track miles, 3,000 bridges, 1,150 level crossings and 55 signal boxes. Maintenance, renewals and enhancements of these assets represented a spend of approximately £1.5 billion within Control Period 5.

Commenting on his appointment, Jeff Davies said: “I am delighted to have the opportunity to lead Andromeda. Since joining I have had the privilege of working with a dedicated team and alongside them I am looking forward to continuing to deliver high quality engineering solutions, through innovation, collaboration and efficiency.”

Former managing director and founder of Andromeda Barry Lumley is to take up a new role as managing director of Andromeda International.
