Claire Wren

Director, Future Transport Systems, Department for Transport
United Kingdom

I joined DfT in summer 2021 and joined with Hannah Newell in a director job-share. Together we led on Transport Day at COP, and in December 2021 established the new Future Transport Systems and Environment directorate with a mission to create a sustainable transport future. We now lead the Future Transport Systems directorate within the Roads Transport Group.

I previously spent 13 years in HM Treasury working in a range of roles, but with an emphasis on supply side policies and also new organisations. Including leading the cross-Whitehall project for supporting for strategic companies in response to COVID and setting up the new UK Infrastructure Bank. I also spent three years at UKGI on secondment sitting on the board of HM Land Registry and setting up the new Geospatial Commission.

Outside work I have two young sons and am a trustee of a local multi-academy trust. I live in SE London.
