Mobility Incubation Lead

The mobility landscape is changing and shifting towards digital. A key pattern is the disruption of existing mobility models, combined with a convergence of previously unconnected areas, driven by digital. Most of these transformations are driven either by a focus on better customer experience to increase the value per customer e.g., Uber, or a more efficient use of existing transport infrastructure by increasing utilisation and reliability.

Our customers are being increasingly disrupted in the market, and our priority is to provide new digital services as an overlay to our existing propositions, to allow them to be successful by focusing on their customers.
