Jude CareyHead of Asset Management at Irish Rail Infrastructure
Embedding value into reliability
Jude is Head of Asset Management for Irish Rail. His responsibilities include raising the asset management capability of the Irish Rail network to ISO55001 standard and the development of Irish Rail’s Asset Management Systems. He is strongly of the belief that asset management is about maximising the “value” realised from an organisation’s assets. Furthermore, continuous improvement projects are a key pillar in delivering the ongoing asset management journey and such projects should be enterprise-wide and structured to deliver maximum ‘value’ to the organisation.
He is an active member of the Asset Management expert working group in the International Union of Railways (UIC). This group’s membership comprises 11 of the leading European railways. He is co-author of the UIC publication “A Guide to Implementing Asset Management in Rail”.
