Transport and infrastructure issues
The transport and infrastructure industry remains one of the most challenging sectors to work in. From new runways to new railways, rail re-franchising to airport ownership, the huge levels of investment and long-term planning required, coupled with a revolving door at the department of transport, means that change management skills are in demand.
Amidst this upheaval, having the right people in place to reach the right solution is proving critical. For over two decades, Impact Executives has been delivering interim managers who can solve the dilemmas facing the industry.
