Highland Business Awards Keynote Speaker Announced

Alex Hynes, Managing Director of Scotland’s Railway is set to address over 300 business leaders at the 2019 Highland Business Awards.

An experienced transport professional, Alex has over 20 years of industry experience and a proven track record of delivering rail improvement and investment programmes.

Alex took over the helm at ScotRail in June 2017, having previously been Managing Director at Arriva Rail North, Britain’s second largest train operating company.

This summer, Alex was appointed to the broader role of Managing Director, Scotland’s Railway following further operational devolution to Scotland and will lead the delivery of Scotland’s Railway through the ScotRail Alliance, a unique and industry-leading partnership between Abellio ScotRail and Network Rail Scotland.

This event will be a unique opportunity for the Highland business community to engage with the man at the helm of Scotland’s largest infrastructure operators and a chance to hear his vision for the future of rail travel in the north, which include plans for an improved long-term timetable for the Far North Line to unlock the potential for greater trade and more business opportunities for the North economy.

The lunch event will also recognise the valuable contribution that so many businesses and individuals make to the Highlands and Islands business community, as the winners of the Highland Business Awards 2019 are announced.


Tickets are now on sale for the event, priced at £65.00 + VAT per person, and may be booked individually or for tables of 10. Price includes welcome drink and three course lunch with tea/coffee. https://www.inverness-chamber.co.uk/events/event/highland-business-awards-2019
