Today, the General Assembly of EIM unanimously elected as Vice-President Gorm Frimannslund, CEO of the Norwegian Infrastructure Manager Bane NOR. Pier Eringa, EIM President and CEO of the Dutch Infrastructure Manager ProRail, and his Vice-Presidents Lena Erixon, CEO of the Swedish Infrastructure Manager Trafikverket and Luc Lallemand, CEO of the Belgian Infrastructure Manager Infrabel, welcomed their new fellow board member.
Gorm Frimannslund thanked all the members of EIM by stating that: “It is an honour to be elected by all members of EIM as Vice-President. Despite not being a Member State of the EU, Norway fully implements European legislation in the railways. In view of the new European Parliament and the new College of Commissioners and the next EU work programme, the role of EIM has become even more strategic for Bane NOR. Therefore, we are looking forward to a close and fruitful cooperation with the association and its members.”
The General Assembly endorsed the work done in 2018 and adopted an ambitious work plan for the second half of 2019 and beyond.
