Ignacio Barrón de Angoiti graduated with a degree in Civil Engineering from the Technical University of Catalonia, Barcelona in 1982. In 1993 he completed a MBA at IESE Business School, Madrid. From 1981 to 1997 he worked in many roles at RENFE (Spanish Railways). These include Chief of Technical Studies at the Direction of Communications between 1987 and 1990 and Operation Manager in High Speed Stations (Madrid – Atocha) between 1991 and 1994.
The precedent Spanish government started an ambitious plan for the construction of new high speed lines and the upgrade of some existing ones. Now, the new government (which came into power midway through 2004), has decided to continue the project, albeit with some changes.
