How we are organised
Our leadership team, also known as ExCom, is led by John Chilman, our Chief Executive. Together, they manage the day-to-day running of Railpen and are responsible for delivering Railpen’s strategy.
The Railpen and RPIL Boards, which are run concurrently and have identical membership, report directly to The Trustee. The Boards are composed of two members of the Railpen Leadership team (ExCom), John Chilman, Chief Executive and Stuart Blackett, Chief Financial Officer, supported by up to seven Non-Executive Directors, three of which are independent Non-Executive Directors.
There are six committees in place to support the Railpen and RPIL Boards in discharging their duties. These are the Railpen Audit and Governance, Railpen Enterprise Risk, Asset Management, Benefits Advisory, Remuneration and Nominations, and Mutual Committees.
RPIL’s Chair and Executive Members are authorised by the FCA in accordance with the Senior Managers and Certification Regime. The Trustee appoints the members of each Board. Click here to see the Railpen and RPIL Board.
