Ports chairman Ross Sayers dies

Ross Sayers, chairman of Associated British Ports and most recently a non-executive director of Intertek, has died at the age of 60. He was formerly chairman and chief executive of the New Zealand and New South Wales rail authorities. When touted as Sir Alastair Morton’s potential successor at the UK’s Strategic Rail Authority in 2001, he said: “I don’t wish to become involved in the railway industry. “I’ve been involved in restructuring two railways and that’s enough.” A year later he became a non-executive director of Network Rail.
