Steer is delighted to welcome Cameron Thick as the Commercial Operations Director for the United Kingdom. A Chartered Accountant with CIMA certification, Cameron enriches our team with nearly a decade of expertise in rail infrastructure. His extensive background encompasses a variety of financial and operational roles, critically supporting Maintenance, Operations, Renewals, and Commercial Property sectors.
Cameron's recent role as Head of Financial Control and Analysis in the Southern Region at Network Rail saw him as a key member of the functional executive leadership team. There, he was instrumental in managing the financial settlement to deliver the maintenance, operations, and infrastructure renewal strategy within the Sussex route. His strategic acumen was further demonstrated through leading on the formulation of a comprehensive business plan, successfully securing £1 billion in funding for the next five-year control period.
Furthermore, Cameron's contributions within the Commercial Property function played a significant role in recuperating revenue and reducing overheads to mitigate against the funding shortfalls cause by post-pandemic market changes.
"I am thrilled to be joining Steer and am eager to contribute to the company's ongoing success. I look forward to leveraging my experience to drive business growth, financial robustness, and profitability, building on Steer's esteemed reputation."
