The mission members are leader Bob Docherty, an international business specialist from UK Trade & Investment; Neil Walker, deputy head of rail at UK Trade & Investment; Jeff Thorne, regional manager of Brecknell Willis; Jim Cudd, vice president for marketing of Invensys Rail Systems; and Tim Gray, international business development director of the Railway Industry Association.
