Trina Minchella has joined Ramboll as director of Rail Infrastructure and Helena Turner to lead the High Speed 2 (HS2) account.
Trina Minchella joined from Network Rail, having worked mostly in the public sector for over 20 years delivering innovation to major railway programmes. Over the course of her career, she has supported the delivery of overground and underground rail programmes with Transport for London. More recently, her work at Network Rail included supporting the implementation of a national SCADA electrification system and the design of signalling programmes across the south and England and Wales as part of Southern Capital Delivery – Signalling.
In addition to leading the rail infrastructure team, she will lead the firm’s account for TfL.
Helena Turner joins Ramboll in a newly created role from Jacobs, having spent the past decade working on projects for BAE, BP and Network Rail, where she worked on the Transpennine Route upgrade and HS2 Phase 2B.
Mike Birch, Ramboll’s divisional director for rail, said “These senior appointments reflect our ambition to grow and invest in our rail business, recognising the important role Rail has in delivering the UK’s net zero future. Trina’s passion for the industry and commitment to improving value for clients and the travelling public will help us secure the best outcomes for clients and their customers. And Helena’s drive for innovation, and exceptional project and programme management skills will be a tremendous asset to Ramboll’s HS2 work.”
