London, 13th November 2023: Trainline Partner Solutions, Trainline’s B2B arm and a leading distributor of global rail content, has announced the promotion of Andrew Cruttenden to the newly created role of General Manager for the business.
In his new role, Andrew will head up both Global Distribution and IT Solutions for TPS, integrating the business’ white label and distribution client teams for the first time. For the past four years, Andrew was Commercial & Bid Director at TPS.
As Europe’s leading independent rail platform, this move will strengthen TPS’ mission to provide more travellers with access to its Platform One technology through partnerships with rail carriers, TMCs and OBTs, both in the UK and across Europe.
With sustainability high on the agenda for corporates in a new era of climate reporting, Andrew’s new role will be dedicated to making rail the smart, seamless and sustainable choice for more business travellers.
I’m delighted to be taking on this new role leading a great team here at TPS. We’re committed to working with our carrier and business travel partners to champion the use of rail and attract more travellers away from less sustainable forms of transport. I look forward to uniting our white label and distribution areas to provide a strategic, integrated approach to our customer relationships and put rail at the heart of more journeys.
Andrew Cruttenden, TPS General Manager
We’re really pleased to appoint Andrew to this important new role. Having been with TPS for several years, Andrew has a great knowledge of the business and the needs of our customers, plus a fantastic understanding of the challenges facing carriers. This will strengthen Trainline’s ability to reach more travellers and support a modal shift to rail among business travellers in particular.
Peter Wood, Trainline Chief Financial Officer
The Global Distribution team was previously led by Liz Emmott, who has now left TPS after a successful tenure over the past two years.
