Jim Steer to become next President of Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport UK, CILT

The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport UK (CILT) has announced the appointment of leading transport planner Jim Steer FCILT as its new President-Elect.

Currently held by Graham Inglis FCILT, Jim Steer will assume the one-year role from May 2013.

Commenting on his appointment, CILT’s current President, Graham Inglis said:
"I’m delighted that Jim Steer has accepted our invitation to become the Institute’s President-Elect. His appointment comes at a critical time in the expansion of Britain’s transport network; the development of the North-South High Speed Rail link, the £37 billion planned expansion by Network Rail and the on-going debate around London’s airport capacity make it an ideal time for him to take the helm. I know that Jim will continue to focus on the Olympic transport legacy and champion road safety as I have during my term in office, and no doubt bring his own ideas to the role.’

Jim Steer said: "The CILT plays a vital role in developing personal and professional excellence in the transport and logistics sectors by encouraging the development of leading-edge thinking and best practice. I am honoured to be its President for the coming year."

Jim Steer is one of the country’s leading authorities on public transport. He is a co-founder of the renowned transport planning company, Steer Davies Gleave (SDG), which began operations in 1978. He took a three-year secondment to the Strategic Rail Authority as a member of its senior executive team with responsibilities for all of its strategic planning activities.

In 2005, he re-joined SDG’s Board. He is now the Director of Greengauge 21 which campaigns for a high speed line in Britain and he has also served as Vice President of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport. Jim is also a well-known speaker on transport topics and a regular contributor to industry publications.
