Angel Trains CEO to retire in September


Kevin Tribley, chief executive officer of leading train leasing company Angel Trains, has announced that he will retire on 1 September 2020 after 21 years with the business.

He has been on the board for 11 years – as commercial director, COO and CEO – and with the company for over 20.

Malcolm Brown, Angel Trains.

Under Kevin’s stewardship, Angel Trains has undertaken an unprecedented programme of asset renewals and enhancements, including recent fast-tracked investment in innovation to deliver green rolling stock technologies.

Kevin’s predecessor Malcolm Brown, who led Angel Trains for ten years prior to Kevin’s appointment as CEO, will return to lead the business, rejoining from AMP Capital where he has spent the past two years as a partner in the infrastructure asset management team.

Malcolm will be part of a well-established senior management team that includes COO David Jordan, CFO Alan Lowe and technical director Matthew Prosser.

Tom Smith, Angel Trains.

 Angel Train’s chairman, Tom Smith, commented: “We are indebted to Kevin for his contribution to Angel Trains. He has been instrumental to the success of the business and establishing it as a leading investor in UK rail.

“Kevin leaves the business in great shape to continue to invest in improving the passenger experience and addressing the decarbonisation agenda.

“While sad to lose Kevin, we are delighted Malcolm is returning. Malcolm led Angel Trains through one of its most successful decades and brings a deep understanding of the sector and industry. We are fortunate to have a CEO of Malcolm’s calibre and experience to take the helm.”
