Interim managing director of Transport for West Midlands
Anne Shaw has worked in local government since the early 90’s pursuing a career that has helped to improve people’s lives. Starting as a junior technician at Birmingham City Council, she worked her way up to the Assistant Director of Transportation responsible for policy, strategy and delivery. She moved to a role at TfWM in 2017 as Director of Network Resilience where she has delivered a unique service keeping residents, businesses and visitors informed of transport disruption helping them to plan journeys and keep moving, as well as preparing the transport operation to support the Commonwealth Games whilst minimising impacts. In July 2021, Anne’s hard work and vision were rewarded when she was appointed Interim Managing Director of TfWM, where she is responsible for providing strategic and operational leadership to support the delivery of TfWM’s priorities as well as leading the WMCA’s response to strategic transport planning, driving economic growth and championing transport innovation and development.
