13 Jan 2020

Today we welcome our new CEO, Julien Dehornoy.

“I am proud to be stepping into the role of CEO of Yarra Trams,” Julien shared today.

“I am very much looking forward to leading this expert team, who operate the largest tram network in the world, and with whom I share a passion for public transport.”

Julien is familiar with large and complex transport operations, following his role at France’s national state-owned rail company, SNCF. He was Managing Director of some of the largest and busiest train lines serving Paris (D-Line and R-Line), part of the Regional Express Network.

Prior to arriving at Yarra Trams, Julien was the Chief of Staff to the Minister for Transport in France, who oversees land, air and sea transport infrastructure and operations. 

Julien succeeds Nicolas Gindt, who led Yarra Trams for four years, and earned the confidence of employees, stakeholders and partners alike.
