Transport for London
As Commissioner, Mike Brown MVO is responsible for making sure TfL provides world-class transport services that keep London working, growing and make life in the Capital better. He oversees TfL's investment programme, which includes some of the largest and most complex engineering projects in Europe.
TfL manages virtually all of the city's transport, including London Underground, the bus network, Docklands Light Railway, TfL Rail, London Overground, London Trams and the Emirates Air Line cable car. It is also responsible for the Capital's busiest main roads, the Congestion Charging scheme, road safety and schemes to boost cycling and walking.
Mike joined London Underground in 1989 and worked in various operational manager roles before becoming the company's Chief Operating Officer in 2003. In 2008, he left to head up Heathrow, then the world's busiest international airport.
He rejoined London Underground in 2010 as Managing Director leading major programmes that have resulted in huge improvements to Tube, helping to make services more frequent and reliable than ever before. He also played a major role in the successful delivery of transport for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
