New CEO for German infrastructure manager DB Netz
Philipp Nagl has been appointed the new CEO of DB Netz, the German infrastructure manager. The 40-year-old railway will take up his new position on 15 August 15 of this year, succeeding Frank Sennhenn, who will enjoy an early retirement after 9 years of service.
Nagl is not a newcomer to the industry. He previously worked for DB Fernverkehr, where he was responsible for long-distance transport.At that same company, he has worked as a timetable and traffic control manager.
Railroader though and through
In the meantime, he was also responsible for corporate development at the Austrian company ÖBB, a job closer to home as he is originally from Austria. Nagl: “I am really looking forward to the new challenge. I’m a railroader through and through and I want to get people excited about the railways – an efficient infrastructure is the core of this. That is what motivates me in particular in my new role.”
