BTPA mourn sudden loss of Finance Director Liz Pike

It is with great sorrow that we announce Liz Pike, Finance Director for the British Transport Police Authority, sadly died from cancer on Saturday 15 March.

Liz had been with the Authority for ten years and was a very highly regarded member of the team. As the Authority’s designated statutory Treasurer Liz was responsible for negotiating, collecting and managing an equitable allocation of charges for Police Service Agreement holders, as well as ensuring prudent, diligent and proper management of the Authority’s and Force’s finances. Liz’s vibrant personality and sharp intellect ensured that she delivered these responsibilities with confidence, whilst her drive and energy saw the Authority successfully navigate through a number of challenging projects.

Liz had worked in the rail industry for many years, coming to the Authority from National Express Group where she was Divisional Commercial Director for the Trains Division.  Liz was well known, liked and respected by all who knew her.

Andrew Figgures Chief Executive of the Police Authority said: “Liz was a wonderful person to work with and an asset to our team who will be sorely missed by me and her colleagues. I know Liz was immensely proud of her family and our thoughts and prayers are with her family at this difficult time.”

Liz is survived by her husband Stewart, daughters Jennifer and Heather and her parents Keith and Anne.

The Authority is collating a book of condolence which will be passed on to Liz’s family.  If you would like to include a message please contact Lucy.yasin@btp.pnn.police.uk or call on 020 7383 3844 by Wednesday 26 March.
