Friday, February 12th, 2010
DB Schenker Rail (UK) Ltd, Britain’s largest rail freight operator, has appointed Jonathan Moser as Managing Director of its Energy segment, the dedicated supplier of freight trains to the UK electricity supply industry.
Jonathan, who was previously Deputy Managing Director of the Energy segment, takes over from Paul Bates, who retires from DB Schenker on 12 February 2010.
Jonathan joined DB Schenker in December 2008 with a remit to support the strategic development of its coal business. He joined the company from First GBRf where he was Business Development Director. Jonathan has over a decade of experience in the coal sector having also been Head of Coal Trading at Cargill International and Coal Supply Manager for TXU.
Jonathan Moser, Managing Director of the Energy segment of DB Schenker, said: “The Energy segment was launched in 2006 under the leadership of Paul Bates. Since its inception Energy has significantly reduced its cost base while at the same time dramatically improved reliability and customer service, leading to major contract wins in a highly competitive market. We thank Paul for his contribution to DB Schenker and wish him a long and enjoyable retirement.”
Mr Moser continued: “Paul led a great team at Energy, built with people who have experience of the electricity supply industry, not just the railway. I will take them forward to grow our business in new and existing markets, while continually improving the industry leading levels of customer service, reliability and safety that we already have.”
