Rowe Hankins Cudis Ltd appoints new non-executive director

29 Oct 2013

Following his retirement from Alstom Transport after 36 years, Terry Jones has joined the management Board of Rowe Hankins Cudis Ltd., (“RHC”), as a Non-Executive Director.  Having worked for GEC High Voltage Switchgear and then GEC Traction, (during which he also took on the purchasing responsibilities of GEC Transportation Projects at the same time, before these companies became GEC Alsthom and then Alstom), his experience fits in well with RHC’s markets and products, with respect to the both the Rail and Circuit Protection divisions.

During his career with Alstom, Terry has been involved in the procurement and contract management of a number of major projects notably acting as the Procurement Consultant for the UK’s combined bid for the first phase of the Shanghai Metro, (as the MetroTech Corporation); taking on the purchasing responsibility for the initial phase of the Manchester Metrolink; acting as the UK Procurement Leader for the Eurostar project; and more recently, the purchase and subsequent maintenance activities for the West Coast Main Line Class 390 Pendolinos together with the Coradia Class 175 fleet operating out of Chester.

Terry has a degree in Business Studies as well as qualifications from the Institute of Purchase & Supply and the Institute of Marketing. He brings a wealth of commercial experience to RHC including the capability of being able to create, negotiate and compose bespoke contracts.

Terry’s vision for RHC includes providing a strong level of commercial support to all functions and he added: “We need to build upon RHC’s niche market advantages, particularly with respect to Rail projects, where we can be more flexible than our competitors as well as endeavouring to be the client’s total solution provider for issues which others find difficult to resolve and, in tandem, being innovative by recognising what our clients need, even before they might do so themselves”.
