Mike Brown

Mike Brown MVO, CBE, Chair of the Restoration & Renewal Delivery Authority for the Houses of Parliament / Palace of Westminster, will be guest speaker at our next Leadership Session on Tuesday 24th May.

The Palace of Westminster, home of Parliament, is one of the most loved and recognised buildings in the world, but it’s falling apart faster than it can be fixed and is in urgent need of repair. The Palace has a rich and remarkable history. Westminster Hall is over 900 years old and has been the scene of great moments in the UK’s political life. Restoring and renewing the Palace will create thousands of new jobs and apprenticeships, while involving craftspeople and businesses from across the UK in a national effort.

About Mike Brown
In addition to chairing the Restoration & Renewal Delivery Authority for the Houses of Parliament / Palace of Westminster, Mike is also an advisor to Mott MacDonald and an independent member of their Shareholder Committee, and sits on the board of Translink, responsible for public transport in Northern Ireland. He also chairs their Projects Oversight Committee.

Mike was the Commissioner for Transport for London, until July 2020. He was responsible for all public transport in the capital and oversaw one of Europe’s largest and most complex major investment programmes. He led the transformation of the London Underground network, delivered a greener cleaner bus fleet and introduced the world’s first ultra low emission zone. He led the transport network’s initial response to the COVID-19 pandemic, ensuring that critical workers were able to get to and from work and successfully negotiated with the Government the emergency funding necessary for the continued operation of services.

Before becoming Commissioner, Mike was Managing Director of London Underground and London Rail for five years. During this time, he planned and delivered the public transport services required for a successful Olympic and Paralympic Games in 2012. Prior to this he was Managing Director of Heathrow Airport.

Mike was also chair of the UK Government’s Strategic Transport Apprenticeship Taskforce and continues to passionately drive the skills agenda.

He is a patron of London Transport Museum.
