Lewis Westbury was appointed Managing Director of iLECSYS Rail earlier this year. Lewis began his journey with iLECSYS in 2014 as a Marketing and Advertising Executive. After 18 months and learning more about the core of the iLECSYS business his attention was soon caught by the rail division. This began with focussed project advertising and training sessions. Lewis began to shadow Peter Dickson where he gained a vast amount of knowledge and experience.  As time went on Lewis soon started to pick up new responsibilities and soon found himself managing various Class II projects, working alongside both Network Rail and their contractors. Later this year Lewis is travelling to Australia to attend the AusRAIL expo and is hoping to develop further business globally in the next few years. 

Spare time for Lewis is family time and together with his wife and daughter, enjoy using their Merlin Pass across the UK at the various attractions. As well as following the 'mighty' Chelsea an ideal Sunday involves a roast dinner!
