INTRODUCING SOME OF OUR TEAM Marcelo Teran – Performance Improvement Manager My role involves working with key internal MTR managers to identify and progress improvement initiatives targeting delays, cancellations and headways as well as working jointly with Network Rail to produce and maintain the ‘Performance Strategy’. My first weeks with MTR have been really encouraging, there is a positive and eager atmosphere and if people feel good they are more likely to produce good results. Dan Roberts – Programme Manager I joined MTR Crossrail at the start of February. My role involves working with all areas of the business to ensure we deliver the wide range of project activities required for the Staged Opening of Crossrail services from May 2015 to December 2019, from station works and testing of the new tunnels, to driver training and staff uniforms. It’s my job to make sure we are delivering the right things, at the right time, and in theright way to meet our commitments to the customer. It’s great being part of a new organisation that is stilltaking shape, and I’ve found the atmosphere to be really friendly and positive as everyone is excited to bepart of such a high-profile transformation to London’s transport system. Sam King – Executive Co-ordinator My role is one of variety, each day I find myself working on new projects with people all across the company. My key roles are to ensure the steady running of the general office and to support the Executive team. The company has done a great job in putting its Vision, Mission and Values into practice, there is a great feel about the place and real buzz about the imminent opening of the operation! Emma Banfield – Duty Performance Reporting Manager I’ll be working in the control room on a 24/7 shift rotation. We will be monitoring real time performance, responsible for making sure the control room logs have detailed information about performance and safety related incidents on the network, identifying weaknesses in agreed plans or processes for review and recommendation. To set up the control room we’ve been tracking IT and software developments,interfacing with other departments, looking at information flows, developing and training competenciesand contingency planning, visiting other control rooms and shadowing the current AGA and Network Railcontrollers on our route. Personally I’ve been making sure Compass, the incident recording and follow-upsystem, is ready for go live.It’s been absolutely great getting to know the MTR Crossrail team and forming relationships for whenwe go live.
