Leanne Wheeler 2

Leanne is a communications professional educated to Master’s degree level in Translation and Professional Language Skills and is experienced in project management, quality and compliance. For over seven years, she has practiced these skills in the rail industry specialising in the areas of railway operations and customer service on high-profile rail bids and mobilisations in Europe and the Middle East. In 2019, Leanne will graduate from the IRO BSc programme in Railway Operations Management. Leanne’s background includes working in the Eurostar UK corporate communications and stations teams and providing professional language translation and editing services (French and Spanish to English).

As a Senior Consultant for North Star, Leanne has produced various bids in the transportation (particularly rail), healthcare, aviation, and defense sectors and has led mobilisation and communications projects on behalf of a number of high-profile transport operators. Significantly, she wrote, edited and produced the technical bid plans for the operation and maintenance of the Doha Metro and Lusail Tram, before going on to support the subsequent mobilisation of the Doha Metro by assisting with the production of all necessary operational documentation for the submission of the final safety case. Leanne also project managed the North Star team that assisted Talgo to successfully prequalify for the provision of HS2 rolling stock.

Following three years based in Dubai as North Star’s Operations Manager for the Middle East, Leanne is now assisting with the international growth of the company by fulfilling the role of Operations Manager for the new North Star Australia office.
