International property and construction consultancy Gleeds has strengthened its rail business with the appointment of former Network Rail advisor Richard Stansfield.

Richard joins the company as director of cost management, bringing more than thirty years experience working for the likes of Faithful & Gould, Network Rail, Mott MacDonald and independent consultancy firm Initiate Project Solutions

In his new role, Richard will support Gleeds in further developing its rail offering, with a focus on building the business' existing relationship with Network Rail across the southern and western regions.


Commenting on his new appointment, Richard said: "The Gleeds rail provision has been expanding at speed over the last few years and I am delighted to be joining the business at a time of such impressive growth. I have gained a wealth of experience over the course of my career to date and I fully intend to harness this expertise as I embark on an exciting new challenge."

Graham Harle, CEO of Gleeds, added: "Richard's appointment is testament to the recent success of our rail division, led by Mark Syrett, and signifies our desire to continue the pattern of growth we have propagated. The business is currently a national lead on transport commercial strategy for the Department for Transport, as well as working in partnership with the Office of Rail and Road. I am confident that Richard will be instrumental in developing these relationships, as well as strengthening the links between Gleeds and Network Rail."
