Parkeon strengthens rail team to drive rapid expansion

David Wearmouth

Leading public transport retailing systems provider Parkeon has appointed David Wearmouth as Head of Sales, UK Rail, to build on its rapid expansion in the rail industry.

David joins Parkeon from Conduent Parking & Public Safety Solutions, formerly Xerox International Transportation Group, where he was UK Business Development Director responsible for customer relationships and revenue growth.

In his new role, he will be leading Parkeon’s engagement with current and prospective rail franchise holders and industry stakeholders to widen the company’s technology reach, leveraging his experience in software sales and urban mobility.

Since entering the rail market in 2009, Parkeon has grown to become one of the UK’s most successful self-service retailing suppliers, thanks to innovations such as the IRIS® video multiplexing system, and the award-winning RetailWall®, which integrates dynamic touchscreen based devices with customer information screens.

Now, in addition to enhancing its hardware leadership, the company is developing a wide range of new generation ticketing and fare collection platforms, including account-based ticketing, with the potential to transform the passenger experience and improve operator efficiency.

“I am very excited to be joining a company that has moved from industry entrant to a market leader in rail retailing systems in just a few years,” says David.

“Government and train operating companies are placing the passenger experience at the heart of their future strategies and are looking to companies such as Parkeon to help deliver the technology pathways that will make travel easier and more joined up.

“There are some great opportunities in the pipeline and Parkeon is well positioned to build on its technological success to date as a systems provider serving multi-modal networks around the world.”
