SNC-Lavalin (formerly Interfleet) has announced two senior promotions, which come hot on the heels of the business fully integrating with its Canadian parent.

Acquired in 2011, Interfleet officially adopted the SNC-Lavalin name on 1st January 2016.

Former Interfleet Director of Infrastructure, Iain Court, has been appointed Business Development Director. In his new position, Iain will manage the UK Sales & Marketing and Bid teams.

Iain joined Interfleet in 2011, and has been instrumental in developing the company’s Infrastructure product area. He began his career at British Rail and boasts over 30 years within the rail industry. More recently, Iain led Interfleet’s Major Projects offering, and will continue to do so for SNC-Lavalin.

The business has also launched a fourth product area this year, to complement the existing Rolling Stock, Rail Control Systems and Infrastructure products.

In his new role as Director, Andy McDonald will lead the System Consulting & Assurance department. Andy was previously Interfleet’s Head of Projects & Strategy. He has been with the company since its inception in 1994, following a British Rail Management Buyout.

“System Consulting & Assurance” draws together the company’s Safety Management & Assurance, Business Consulting, Human Factors, Systems & Systems Engineering teams, as well as the Training & Software teams.

“Iain and Andy possess a wealth of expertise, and will continue to be an asset to our organisation moving forward,” says Michael Grace, UK Regional Director for SNC-Lavalin Rail & Transit. “Our name has changed, but fundamentally, our people haven’t. The new structure has united over 1,000 rail experts across the globe, including the former Interfleet team.”
