Open Destinations appoints Olivier Bressard as VP Rail Solutions
Open Destinations has appointed Rail industry specialist Olivier Bressard VP Sales for Rail Solutions with immediate effect. He will take on the building of new partnerships with Rail Operators worldwide and will be overseeing the business development and marketing for Open Destinations’ ‘Rail Studio’ suite.
Bressard is a former Railteam executive and CCO of Air Cube ; he has more than 20 years’ senior level experience in the Travel and Rail Industry.
He comes with a deep understanding of the complexity of Rail distribution and will provide valuable input into the development of Open Destinations’ Rail portfolio and strategic plan to be a leading technology supplier in the Rail passenger sector.
“Railways are looking to evolve their commercial model beyond selling seats, boosting revenues by packaging, and making services and ancillaries available through their sales channels. Open Destinations have a world class technology solution, ‘Rail Studio’, which will appeal to Rail Operators around the world” comments Bressard “Rail is emerging as the transport of the future. We are living an exciting era for Rail travel, with an ever-more climate-conscious generation of travellers and policy-makers. Meanwhile, deregulation of the market is driving new operators to step in with fresh ideas catering to new client expectations and helping incumbent Railways to rethink the way they package and distribute Rail travel”.
Open Destinations’ CEO Kevin O’Sullivan added “I would like to welcome Olivier to Open Destinations. His background and experience in the sector will be instrumental to efficiently address the challenges Rail Operators’ are facing today. His addition to the team supports our ambition to increase Open Destinations’ presence in the sector and become a preferred supplier of IT solutions for passenger railways. We are delighted to work with him and look forward to many more partnerships in the Rail sector”.
