Former Toll head Greg Miller’s time as chair of KiwiRail is over – he’s moved across to become the company’s chief executive.

Acting chair Brian Corban says the appointment sends a strong signal as the company prepares for unprecedented growth and change, including replacing Interislander ferry fleet, the need for a major rolling stock replacement programme and new initiatives such as the reopening of the Napier to Wairoa line and an $80 million investment in tourism services.

He says Mr Miller an unrivalled set of global experience in supply chain, a history with rail, domestic transport expertise, and who has led companies through significant growth and transformation.

Mr Miller says the organisation is at a pivotal point with the support of the Government and the ability to make a once-in-a-generation difference to New Zealanders through easing congestion in cities, taking trucks off vulnerable roads, reducing carbon emissions and driving investments in regional economies.
