Bombardier Transportation has appointed Paul Brown as managing director of its operations in Australia. He succeeds Andrew Dudgeon, who has decided to leave the company.

Bombardier already has an extensive presence in Australia. It employs more than 1,000 people to design, manufacture and maintain rolling stock, signalling equipment and other components for the rail industry. The company also provides asset management and servicing for all its products. Brown’s principal objective will be improving the competitiveness of its operations across the country – strengthening stakeholder relations, delivering projects and services and securing new business.

Per Allmer, President, Western Europe, Middle East, Africa, South East Asia and Australia, Bombardier Transportation, said:

“This management change is made as Bombardier undertakes a number of positive transformation initiatives to strengthen its business in key rail ecosystems. We are delighted to bring Paul into this role, to reinforce our management team, accelerate our transformation, and increase our focus on satisfying our customers in Australia.”

Brown has worked at Bombardier for 35 years and has accumulated extensive experience in commercial management, project management and sales. He has successfully delivered projects in the UK, Europe, Asia and Australia.

The design of the trains features enhanced security, wifi, air-conditioning and accessible toilet facilities.
