The General Assembly of European Rail Infrastructure Managers (EIM) unanimously elected Pier Eringa, CEO of ProRail, the rail infrastructure manager in the Netherlands. Pier Eringa stated that: “Together with my colleagues, I continue being committed to leverage infrastructure managers’ role. I am keen to make our best practices available to others and learn from them in order to serve our customers even better. We are currently ongoing substantial reforms, triggered by EU legislation but also external factors, such as digitalization, automatization and geopolitics. In such a constantly changing environment, we need a single actor to represent our interests. Hence, EIM is of strategic importance for me and my company. Together with my colleagues, we will work on seeking a strong, yet future-oriented collaborative dialogue with all relevant stakeholders whilst preparing for the challenges and opportunities ahead.”.
The role of EIM is to provide a single voice to represent its members to the relevant European institutions and sector stakeholders. EIM also assists members to develop their businesses through the sharing of experiences and contributing to the technical and safety activities of the Agency (former ERA).
