Tim Whitcher, WSP

Company | WSP
Job Position | Solution Lead, Digital Railway


Tim is an engineer and technology strategist. Having started his railway career as an assistant tester and worked his way up to Head of Operations, by way of project delivery, management consultancy and STEM education, he is just as happy getting his hands dirty on the shop floor as he is the Board room.

One thing that journey has made him realise is just how interconnected the transport ecology is and how its resilience is based on being more than the sum of its parts. Tim is WSP’s Solution Lead for Digital Rail and Smart Cities Lead for the Rail division in the UK and the guiding principle for his work is that digitation is really just the lever to open the door for the wider transport challenge, from policy to technology.
