Pierre Gosset joins Keolis from Systra


Pierre Gosset will join the Keolis Group, taking up the role of executive director of its Industrial Division from 1 March 2021.

The Industrial Division manages the group’s operations and maintenance activities, centres of expertise (including infrastructure, energy and transition, industrial asset management, on-board systems, signalling and passenger information), purchasing, IT and the consulting activities of Keolis Conseil et Projets.

With over 25 years of experience in the transport sector, Pierre will be in charge of business and industrial excellence at Keolis, and of consolidating the group’s contribution to the energy transition.

A graduate of Ecole Centrale de Nantes (1994) and INSEAD (2001), Pierre Gosset (now 50) spent part of his career with Alstom Transport, which he joined in 1998.
