Evolvi Rail Systems Appoints New Managing Director

Kirstie van Oerle has been appointed Managing Director of Evolvi Rail Systems, the UK's leading provider of online rail booking and fulfilment functionality to corporate travel specialists, online booking tools and expense management systems. 

She moves to the position from within Capita PLC, which owns Evolvi, having served as Business Development and Marketing Director across multiple business units within the group. Kirstie brings extensive technology and transport expertise to the role. 

Comments Kirstie: "I am delighted to be joining Evolvi at such an exciting time in its development. The company's online rail proposition continues to grow through its relationships with leading travel management companies, content aggregators and online bookings tools. However, the trend towards greater integration of corporate travel services, coupled with emergence of new technology players, signals significant and new opportunities for our rail API in platforms serving UK and international markets." 

Kirstie van Oerle joined Capita in 2016, having previously worked in senior management positions for advanced technology and transport businesses, including Siemens, Atos, CGI and Arqiva, where she was heavily involved in digital transformation projects and Internet of Things applications. 

She says: "In the corporate space, Evolvi will continue to innovate in support of its TMC customer base, whether through its self-booking platform or its API as the move towards the much-heralded smart ticketing era gains pace. Moreover, recent commitments by Network Rail to widen the scope of its data sharing activities point to a future in which new rich content can be applied to enhance value for platform owners and users." 

Evolvi's product portfolio includes EvolviNG, the corporate travel sector's market-leading self-booking platform, and the industry-leading EvolviWS API, which provides the UK's most configurable rail content for travel portals, online booking tools, content aggregators and expense management systems.
