Derby’s Simoco Wireless Solutions has appointed Graeme Warne to a newly created Business Development Manager position, where he’ll oversee the company’s growing range of solutions for transport organisations.
Mr Warne joins from a senior business development position at Dynniq, a leading provider of transport management systems. There, he has built sales experience across both the road and rail markets.
This high-level technology expertise will now be applied across Simoco’s portfolio of transport clients, maintaining relationships with existing partners and developing new ones.
Simoco Wireless Solutions works across all areas of the transport industry. The company provide and maintain communications infrastructure for Transport for London, including 24/7 support for the city’s busiest road tunnels, handling 250,000 vehicles a day.
It also operates communication networks across 18 UK airports, including Heathrow.
The company’s expertise in developing bespoke telemetry systems enables transport organisations to capture information from across vast areas and constantly-moving fleets, ensuring more efficient fleet management and a proactive approach to maintenance and repairs.
With the Emergency Services Network (ESN) currently in development, Simoco is also helping transport organisations to ready themselves for integration with the new network.
Andy Woodhall, Chief Sales Officer at Simoco Wireless Solutions, said: “Transport is a rapidly-growing client sector for us, and Graeme’s appointment is specifically to support and develop that function.
“His industry expertise is outstanding; he really understands the nuanced challenges faced by road and rail operatives and follows our consultative ethos. We’re confident that he will bring a wealth of quality experience and expertise into our organisation, and are very much looking forward to working with him.”
