Back Story and Achievements
Kirsty comes from a Construction background, undertaking a degree in construction management whilst working part-time for a small Lincoln-based construction firm. She has extensive experience in project fields, from Town Centre redevelopments (Witney, Oxfordshire) to sustainable innovation projects (M&S Plan A, Ellesmere Port). Kirsty took a segway into railway, first learning all about operations and management of the railway, eventually moving back into construction-related projects within the railway environment. There she would build a close working relationship with Network Rail, Local Councils and the DfT by delivering many small and large-scale projects through a team of project managers to jointly bid and secure funding through transforming cities and levelling up funding.
