TfL on track for internal interim

TfL is looking to replace Walder - who leaves at the end of February - with internal candidates on an interim basis

The plum role at the helm of Transport for London’s finance function could be
carried out by internal candidates on an interim basis as the company gears up
for the departure of current boss Jay Walder.

Sources close to the public sector division, currently delivering a £10bn
investment programme, have said that his replacement is yet to be decided.

TfL is looking to replace Walder, credited with the successful introduction
of the Oyster card before he leaves at the end of February.

Last November TfL said that Walder’s dual role of finance and planning boss
could be split into two but speculation has increased that the firm may catapult
an internal candidate or candidates into the position when it becomes vacant.

‘There’s absolutely no movement on this at the moment,’ a spokesman said when
asked if a selection process had got underway.
