Dick Wollan was appointed to the then new post of Chief Executive of the Festiniog Railway Company in March 1979, at the beginning of the final push to Blaenau Ffestiniog. He remained in post until September 1983, by which time the railway had been opened through to Blaenau. A brief portrait appears on page 24 of Festiniog Railway Magazine 84. Dick died on the 27 June 2010, as a nursing home in Kent.
The title of Chief Executive was not used again except for a short period in 2000 and 2001, when Ken Allen was appointed as Acting Chief Executive.
