Gordon Sage Appointed as Non-Executive Director

Railtrack Group PLC today announced the arrival of Gordon Sage as a Non Executive Director.

Gordon Sage joined the main board at Rio Tinto in April 1995 and is responsible for the group's borates, titanium dioxide, talc, salt, gypsum and diamond businesses, including the development of the Diavik diamond project currently being pursued in Northern Canada.

Mr Sage joined Rio Tinto (then RTZ) in 1970 as a member of the corporate planning department dealing with the assessment of major projects and has subsequently held several senior positions across the Company.

A graduate of Imperial College with a masters in business administration from the London Business School, Mr Sage is a Chartered Engineer.

At the same time as Gordon Sage joins it was also announced that Norman Broadhurst, Executive Director, and formerly Finance Director is stepping down from the Board and retires from the Company on 29 February to pursue other interests.

Commenting on the Board appointments and departures, Chairman Sir Philip Beck said, 'Gordon Sage will add both experience and knowledge of very long term major projects to the Board and I look forward to working with him to take Railtrack forward as a business and public service provider. Norman Broadhurst's original retirement date was based around the planned completion of the London Underground Public Private Partnership negotiations which are now no longer happening. We thank him for his major contribution and wish him well for his future career.'
