New CEOs Named

Verster, Metrolinx

Metrolinx in Toronto has named Phil Verster its new president and chief executive officer, effective Oct. 1. Verster previously was a managing director of Britain’s Network Rail, where his assignments included operating the ScotRail Alliance in Scotland and initiating work on a new rail line linking Oxford and Cambridge.

Following the retirement of John Jensen, who had served as interim CEO after Bruce McCuaig stepped down to join the Canadian federal government, Metrolinx named Robert Siddal, the current chief financial officer, as interim CEO.
