At Keolis Germany there will be a change of management on 1 July. Anne Mathieu will be the new Chief Executive Officer and will take over from the previous CEO, Magali Euverte, who has been appointed Managing Director of SNCF (Société Nationale des Chemins de fer Français, French State Railway Company).
“We congratulate Anne Mathieu on the new position and would like to thank Magali Euverte for her practical leadership and commitment to eurobahn. She has made a significant contribution to actively strengthening the “Focus Railway “program in order to take sustainable initiatives against the skills shortage, which serve the entire industry, particularly our passengers”, said Bernard Tabary, Keolis Group Executive Director International.
Anne Mathieu was appointed CEO of Keolis Germany on 22 June 2020 per shareholder resolution. Mathieu has been Managing Director at Keolis Germany since February 2018. With the appointment of Mathieu, the company creates continuity and drives the strategy forward. Together with Managing Director Oliver Glaser, the new CEO will continue to develop topics such as “digitization in the driver’s cab” and the turnaround in cooperation with the “Focus Train” program. “Looking back over the past two and a half years, I look forward to consistently continuing our previously launched projects and strategies. The top priority is cross-departmental, the point of security. Other focuses are to offer our passengers sustainable quality and stability and the company to be economically stable to establish”, Mathieu added.
