Alstom’s servitization driving force Mike Hulme awarded Honorary Professorship

We are delighted to announce that Mike Hulme, Managing Director of Trains and Modernisation for Alstom, will join the Advanced Services Group as an Honorary Professor.

Mike has been awarded the honorary professorship in recognition of his 17 years’ service to the rail industry, in particular the pivotal role he has played in the introduction of advanced services contracts to Alstom, such as the availability-based contract with Virgin on the West Coast Mainline.

(Find out more in the Alstom Case Study).

Mike is a key ambassador for advanced services within the rail industry. His appointment as an honorary professor provides a platform to share his knowledge and expertise with a wider audience in other industries, helping to raise the profile of the opportunities that such innovative strategies create.

Mike brings a wealth of expertise and experience to the Advanced Services Group. After leaving school in 1985, he was sponsored through his University degree by British Nuclear Fuels Sellafield, where he subsequently held various engineering and operational roles. He joined Alstom in October 2001 as Validation Manager and has held several senior positions in the company, including Engineering and Tender Director and Vice President.

Since taking the reigns as Managing Director (Trains and Modernisation) in 2015, Mike has been responsible for the strategic approach of key transport solutions including rolling stock supply and associated maintenance services.

He holds a 1st Class BSc Honours Degree in Engineering and Management from Durham University. He is a Chartered Engineer and Fellow of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers.

Here at ASG, we are very excited to be working with Mike and would like to extend a very warm welcome. His expertise in managing the complex organisational and technological pathway for an organisation to offer advanced services successfully will be an invaluable resource to many of our partner businesses who are at the start of their own services transformations.
