Michael Ewart

Managing Director

A thirty year signalling veteran and hugely respected within the UK's rail industry, Michael is the driving force behind Amaro's recent successes. His primary focus, however, remains the health, happiness and wellbeing of his team, ensuring they fulfil their potential to achieve maximum progression within the business.

Over the last ten years, Amaro has gone from strength to strength, becoming a hugely respected force within the UK's rail industry.

None of this would have been possible, however, without the hard work and expertise of our team. it's their dedication and experience that has allowed Amaro to become the business you see today. I feel privileged to count these people amongst my friends and colleagues.

A stalwart of the rail industry with almost three decades of experience under his belt, Michael began his railway journey as a Signalling Technician for British Rail back in 1991 before becoming a Route Section Signalling Manager for Balfour Beatty Rail Maintenance three years later.

Six years down the line, he became a Signalling and Telecoms Maintenance Engineer for Jarvis before moving on to work for Network Rail, achieving the position of Route Programme Director (LNE & EM) in less than ten years.

Michael held the post of Operations Director for Giffen (now Amco Giffen) from 2014 before joining Amaro as Operations Director in 2018, becoming Managing Director in October 2019.

A highly respected individual within Amaro and the wider industry, Michael has wide ranging responsibilities within the organisation including…

  • Setting the overall strategic direction of the business
  • Leading, directing and mentoring a varied team of directors, managers and engineers
  • Managing the financial performance of the organisation
  • Ensuring the effective implementation of Amaro’s behavioural safety programme
