Breakfast Briefing with Dr Peter Ewen, Engineering Director of MTR Corporation Limited

Please email for more information

Dr Peter Ewen is currently the Engineering Director and a member of the Executive Directorate of the Mass Transit Railway Corporation, Hong Kong.  His main roles are to drive excellence in the Corporation’s engineering functions, to strengthen control and check and balance processes, initial design and development of new railway projects and to lead all HK procurement for the Corporation.

Dr Ewen started his career as an apprentice engineer in the Royal Air Force (RAF) of the United Kingdom and after a full career attained the rank of Air Vice-Marshal.  He served in different capacities including frontline maintenance and control of aircraft on military operations and Chief of Staff Support and Executive Officer for the RAF and Chief Engineer (Air).  However, much of his latter day roles involved procurement and in-service support.  In his last role as Director Air Support within the UK’s Defence Equipment and Support organisation, he was responsible for the procurement, in-service support and airworthiness of the UK’s fleets of military large aircraft such as Strategic Airlift, Tactical Airlift, Air-to-Air refuelling and Intelligence gathering aircraft. Following retirement from the RAF, Dr Ewen worked for a short period within the UK’s Department for Transport as a Procurement Advisor for Rail Franchising before moving to become the Head of Air for Airbus Defence and Space UK.

Join us as we invite Dr Peter Ewen to speak about his role at the MTR Corporation, major projects in the pipeline for Hong Kong, and the challenges and opportunities in the public transportation sector.
