TfL’s CFO makes a change after 12 years


Simon Kilonback is leaving Transport for London after 12 years, where he most recently served as the organisation’s chief financial officer.

He is moving to take up the role as a CFO at G.Network, which is a full-fibre broadband provider with a particular focus on the London market.

Simon’s time at Transport for London began in 2009, as the group treasurer. He then became the director of corporate finance before moving up to CFO in 2017.

TfL says he brought the organisation to the “cusp of financial sustainability” in the lead up to the pandemic. Since the rise of COVID-19, he has pushed to make it even more efficient and was critical in stabilising TfL’s finances during the pandemic.

Andy Byford, London’s transport commissioner, said: “The contribution of the CFO to organisations like TfL often goes without fanfare. But the challenges we have faced as an organisation and the absolute centrality of efficiency within our business have meant that Simon’s phenomenal contribution has been plain for all to see.

“He leaves TfL a more efficient and effective organisation than ever before and has put in the most remarkable of shifts to stabilise TfL through the ravages of the pandemic and to set us on a path to future financial sustainability. His work will leave a lasting important legacy from which we will continue to build, and we thank him for everything he has done.”
