Fiona Malcolm was announced as the ‘Young Rail Professional of the Year 2016’ at the YRP Dinner on Friday 8th April 2016.
Fiona joined Porterbrook in September 2012 with a MEng (Hons) in Mechanical Engineering and has followed Porterbrook’s IMechE accredited Monitored Professional Development Scheme since. On completion of her initial training, Fiona was appointed as Fleet Engineer with responsibility for Porterbrook’s fleets on lease to Northern Rail.
The award was presented in front of over 300 rail professionals at this year’s event at the National Railway Museum in York.
Fiona was praised for going above and beyond what is expected of someone at an early stage in her career, in particular with regards to inspiring and supporting other young people to develop themselves.
Congratulations from the RFM team, Fiona!
