Darren James joins Keltbray as group CEO


Darren James has taken over as group chief executive officer of the Keltbray Group, taking over from Brendan Kerr who has moved to the role of executive chairman.

Darren is no stranger to the rail industry.  He is a director of the Railway Industry Association and joins Keltbray from Costain, where he was chief operating officer.

A civil engineering graduate of the University of Surrey, Darren joined Costain 30 years ago as an industrial placement student, progressing through the organisation to become managing director of the £1 billion-turnover infrastructure division. He has been a member of the executive board for 12 years.
