Rachel Leech

In her ‘day job’ Rachel is responsible for managing the Rail Safety Standards Board (RSSB)’s relationships across GB rail: Network Rail, LNER, ScotRail, HS2 and more! She was previously headhunted to the tech start up founded by web inventor Sir Tim Berners-Lee, and prior to that managed global relationships with oil/mechanical engineering companies like BP, from Azerbaijan to Indonesia for the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE).
A graduate in English, Rachel is passionate about helping people from diverse backgrounds into technical and engineering careers. She volunteers as a mentor for Women in Rail, as well as speaking at events for college students across her home county of Yorkshire, where she enjoys getting around in her recently-acquired campervan!
