Deputy MD & Business Development Director

With Abellio since 2011, initially as Finance & Projects Director and now as Deputy Managing Director and Business Development Director, Julian Edwards brings a wealth of experience from both within and out with the rail sector.

In his current role, Julian provides financial, commercial and project support to our existing businesses and drives development and growth with our bidding team.

He sits on the operating company boards of our Greater Anglia, Merseyrail, ScotRail and Abellio London Bus businesses, and was also Abellio's figurehead on the extension of our Greater Anglia franchise.

Julian has carved out a fantastic career – a highlight of this being becoming a Finance Director at a young age (32). Prior to joining Abellio, he held financial roles with ITV, FD roles for both National Express and the Go-Ahead Group, and was also Bid Director for National Express in 2007.
