Incremental’s growth continues with senior level hires.

Gareth Biggins and Aurelie Butin

Incremental Solutions, the York-based smart transport technology provider, has announced two new senior-level appointments in the roles of Head of Product and Innovation Business Development Manager.

Both recruits come from within the rail industry and the appointments reflect Incremental’s growing list of rail sector clients across the UK and a continued growth trajectory of the organisation.

Aurelie Butin previously held roles at Rail Europe, Loco2, SNCF and Keolis and brings with her over a decade of industry knowledge and takes the newly formed role of Head of Product. The role will essentially help define Incremental’s product-USP and bridge the company’s offering between customers, business teams and delivery teams.

Gareth Biggins held roles with Arriva UK Trains, London Overground Rail Operations Ltd and MTR . He takes a new role of Innovation Business Development Manager. Gareth’s role at Incremental is to work with internal teams, clients, and partners to identify and secure new business opportunities for innovation, whether enhancements to existing products or the development of new solutions that address a specific customer need.

Commenting on her appointment, Aurelie says;

“It’s a truly exciting role which I’m relishing. I’m convinced that a product driven strategy associated with an agile delivery is the key to creating product differentiation, customer satisfaction and ultimately drive success. The Incremental product is disrupting the rail industry and that will have tremendous impacts of the everyday life of thousands of passengers.”  

Gareth adds;

Innovation will be a key factor in modernising the rail industry, and it’s agile organisations like Incremental which I believe will lead the charge. I’m looking forward to helping shape new ideas and opportunities so that they deliver tangible benefits to customers and transport users.”

The two appointments come during notably challenging times for the rail industry due to the Covid-19 pandemic, however Incremental are optimistic that the public and the business sector will soon return to this transport method.

Daniel Lee-Bursnall, Commercial Director and co-Founder, concludes;

We firmly believe that rail is the most sus­tainable mode of transport for travelling on short to medium distances and the outcome of what we do is a rail network which is managed in a much more effective and data-informed way leading to improvements in safety, timetable manage­ment, incident response time and ultimately – greater passenger satisfaction.

The appointment of Aurelie and Gareth, as well as other new team members, brings core industry experience to Incremental and helps us to continue to grow and add to these positive outcomes.”
