Alstom names Jason Baldock as new MD for signalling systems & infrastructure


Jason Baldock has been appointed as managing director of Alstom’s signalling systems & infrastructure business in the UK.  He will take up his new position on 7 September 2020. 

This announcement follows the news that current Alstom MD Jonathan Willcock is leaving to head up Skanska’s UK infrastructure business in October.

Jason has 24 years’ experience in commercial and project delivery roles, with the last 13 years in the rail industry. He joined GE Transportation in 2007 from Cambridge Fluid Systems, leading global commercial teams in signalling and train control markets before being appointed as managing director for the UK & Ireland in 2011.

Following Alstom’s acquisition of GE’s signalling business in 2015, Jason has had responsibility for business growth in rolling stock and services.

He has a first-class honours degree in Business Management from Anglia Ruskin University and is a Fellow of the Institute of Leadership & Management.
