In April 2023 it will be exactly 10 years since I created our brand Jobson James Rail, The Rail Broker. I set out to provide a quality insurance and advice service to the railway supply chain and we have come a long way in 10 years. I had worked for a range of railway-related and aggregate-related businesses for 10 years, including Aggregate Industries, Mendip Rail, Charcon, RFS and others, and saw a gap in the market for a true rail expert advisor with genuine railway contract knowledge to support the railway supply chain.
It used to be just me as the sole rail expert with a couple of back office staff, but now I am blessed to have a team of highly qualified and highly knowledgeable rail expert Client Managers, who many of you know. So let me name them: Clare Brecknell, Tim Smith, John McNeill, Richard Allen and our Sales and Marketing Manager Antoinette Stevenson. I would like to thank all of the clients and other rail industry professionals that have supported us in that decade of hard work.
I would also like to thank our Trade Association supporters, namely the Railway Industry Association,the Rail Forum, the Permanent Way Institution and our marketing company Rail Business Daily. We have grown to become the market leading insurance and contractual advisor, and it’s been quite a journey. We now support 550 railway clients
and are growing every month…..
