Chris Price, NYMR General Manager said “The railway is delighted to have Garry in the team, on a personal note it will be great to work closely with someone I last worked alongside at the Talyllyn. Garry will bring the experience we need to overhaul the railways financial function whilst also guiding the railways financial strategy.”

Garry takes up his role officially from the start of April but has already been attending meetings.
