Wallace Weatherill has been appointed as managing director of Serco Middle East in a role that will include spearheading the operations of Dubai Metro - the largest automated transport system in the region, as well as the Emirate's tram system.

He re-joins the company having previously served as Serco’s Director for Rail in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. With almost 20 years dedicated experience in the operations of critical rail systems in both the UK and the Middle East.

I am confident that Wallace will be an asset to our team and will continue Serco’s award-winning delivery of service across the RTA transport systems." 


Wallace added: "My vision is to build on the success that has already been achieved by the RTA and Serco on the operations of the iconic RTA rail transit systems in Dubai. We must also integrate the new Red Line Extension in a seamless way, unlocking new journey opportunities and building the resilience required to welcome the increase of passengers. Serco’s aim to empower nationals within our business will continue; our people are our assets and at Serco, we are all proud to be delivering essential services to the UAE."
