Kevin Tribley announces his retirement

London, UK – Today, Angel Trains, one of Britain’s leading train leasing companies, announces the forthcoming retirement of its CEO, Kevin Tribley, on the 1st September 2020, after 21 years with the business.

For over two decades, Kevin has been at the heart of Angel Trains’ success and industry-first investments – on its Board for 11 years, as Commercial Director, COO and CEO. Under Kevin’s stewardship, Angel Trains has undertaken an unprecedented programme of asset renewals and enhancements, including recent fast-tracked investment in innovation to deliver green rolling stock technologies.

Malcolm Brown, who led Angel Trains for ten years prior to Kevin’s appointment as CEO, will return to lead the business. Malcolm returns to Angel Trains from AMP Capital, where he has spent the past two years as a Partner in the infrastructure asset management team. Malcolm will once again lead a well-established senior management team, including David Jordan, COO, Alan Lowe, CFO, and Matthew Prosser, Technical Director.

Tom Smith, Chairman of Angel Trains, said:

We are indebted to Kevin for his contribution to Angel Trains. He has been instrumental to the success of the business and establishing it as a leading investor in UK rail. Kevin leaves the business in great shape to continue to invest in improving the passenger experience and addressing the decarbonisation agenda. While sad to lose Kevin, we are delighted Malcolm is returning. Malcolm led Angel Trains through one of its most successful decades and brings a deep understanding of the sector and industry. We are fortunate to have a CEO of Malcolm’s calibre and experience to take the helm.

Kevin Tribley said:

As I look ahead to my retirement, I am immensely proud to have been part of such a successful organisation and to have played my role in shaping the business and its achievements during my 21-year career at Angel Trains. I leave the company in very safe hands.

Malcolm Brown said:

Angel Trains has always been at the forefront of investment and innovation in UK rail, working alongside industry partners and government. I am delighted to be back with the business, and to continue the collaborative efforts needed to address industry challenges and realise the opportunities of an accelerated decarbonisation programme.
