RFM welcomes two new members to the team

As a result of continued growth in the membership, Rail Forum Midlands (RFM) is pleased to welcome our two newest additions to the team, Ben Higgens, Engagement Manager – Rail Infrastructure, and Sam Pardoe, Communications and Membership Support Co-ordinator.

Ben is responsible for developing the relationship with and providing support to a designated group of infrastructure focussed Rail Forum members. Ben will also be supporting the wider RFM team with the delivery of various events and activities.

“I am really excited about this role.  The breadth of capability in railway infrastructure and across our membership is huge and I can’t wait to get out and about to meet and support members in this space.”

Sam is responsible for developing and delivering a series of social media campaigns in support of the Rail Forum’s membership activities. Sam will also assist the Rail Forum team with the preparation of newsletters as well as updating the Rail Forum website and various social media.

“Promoting the achievements of the members to wider audiences and in new creative ways will be a key part of my role and I am really looking forward to finding out more about the exciting developments taking place across our membership.”

The entire RFM team will be at the Annual Conference on 20th October at Pride Park, Derby. This will be a great opportunity to meet both the new and existing team members, so don’t forget to book your place – https://www.railforum.uk/events/rail-forum-annual-conference/
