New Olympic event - musical chairs!

06 October 2010

Musical chairs appears to be a new Olympic event with the news that David Higgins - chief executive of the Olympic Delivery Authority – is to join Network Rail as its new chief executive. He will be bidding goodbye to John Armitt – the Chairman of the Olympic Delivery Authority – who is a former Network Rail chief executive.

David Higgins will replace Iain Coucher at the start of this month on a salary reported to be slightly less than Coucher’s £613,000 basic salary (before bonuses).

‘Mr Higgin’s coming from the Olympic Authority gives a new twist to the expression ‘take the money and run’,’ said ASLEF general secretary Keith Norman.
