Our first Employee Director is Lizzie Power!
Move brings employee voice to boardroom
Euston Train Manager Lizzie Power has just been elected as the first Avanti West Coast Employee Director. In her new role, which she will hold for three years, Lizzie will be engaging with and representing colleagues across the whole business to bring an employee voice direct to the boardroom. But the role doesn’t stop there, Lizzie will also act as an ambassador and represent Avanti West Coast at events.
Lizzie was elected following a ballot of all colleagues. Throughout the process she demonstrated industry knowledge, strong communication skills and confidence to interact with a wide range of people. What also shone through was Lizzie’s energy and passion to make a difference. Lizzie’s voice on the Board will be crucial for our people over the coming years as Avanti rolls out plans for more trains, more seats and more services for all our customers.
