Graeme Thompson takes HS1 CFO role as Graham Gunn departs

GRAEME THOMPSON is the new CFO of the London-to-Europe high speed railway.

He joins HS1 after the resignation of Graham Gunn, who held the post since 2007.

The company was a subsidiary of London & Continental Railways, before its sale in 2010 to a Canadian consortium comprising Borealis Infrastructure Ltd and Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan.

Thompson is formerly finance and regulation director at EON Central Networks.

He said: “I look forward to my time at HS1, a company unique in the UK but part of a growing European high speed rail network.

“The priorities are clear: to drive value for our shareholders and benefits to our customers. Even before we get to 2012 and 2013, there are exciting projects as we continue to grow in the private sector with new and exciting opportunities – only last week we saw the opening of the Westfield Stratford centre outside our Stratford International station and next month we’ll see the opening of the new campus for Central St Martins at King Cross.”
