Incremental make strong start to 2023 with new appointments.

Incremental, the York-based smart transport technology provider, has announced two new appointments in the roles of Business Development Director and Finance Director.

Both recruits come with great experience within the rail technology industry and are the result of the continued commercial and organisational growth of Incremental.

Alex Robertson (left) takes the newly created role of Business Development Director, reporting to CEO Daniel Lee-Bursnall. Joining from Tracsis, Alex brings 16 year’s experience in the UK Rail supply chain. He has worked closely with TOCs, FOCs and Network Rail in the UK, as well as bidding and supplying to customers in the US, New Zealand, Australia and Scandinavia, and is tasked with expanding Incremental’s offering and customer base in the UK and abroad.

David Thornton takes the permanent role of Finance Director – again, reporting to Incremental’s CEO. After previously holding several senior roles at Tracsis, including Finance Director and Managing Director of their Operations and Planning division, David also brings experience from the manufacturing, distribution and energy sectors – having worked with companies such as DHL, Premier Farnell and Cargill.

Of the appointments, CEO and Founding Partner – Incremental, Daniel Lee-Bursnall said;
“We’re so pleased to welcome these new members of the Incremental team. They come with fantastic experience and share our vision for what we can achieve in this industry. As Incremental continue to grow, it’s important that I have a great team to take on more responsibilities, and Alex and David certainly fit that bill.”

Alex Robertson, Business Development Director added;
“It’s an exciting time at Incremental and I can’t wait to get started. They are a company I‘ve previously admired, and am excited to be joining an established team of passionate and extremely knowledgeable people, with an excellent offering to help  improve the railway. I’m looking forward to what we can achieve and how we can expand the business together.”

David Thornton, Finance Director concluded;
“Incremental’s reputation in the market and Dan’s vision for the future were quite compelling to me and I’m pleased to be joining this business. There’s lots of challenges in the rail industry, however Incremental have so many tools in place to help improve it in many areas.”

Both Alex and David will be part of Incremental’s senior management team. The company is expected to announce further good news with more hires and business wins over the coming weeks.
