FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
(August 20 2018,London)– Optibus, the leading provider of real-time operations and planning for mass transportation, announced today the opening of its UK offices in London, and the appointment of Dave Joshua as its UK Country Manager.
The UK mass transit market is one of the oldest and largest public transit operations in the world. As Optibus’ presence in the UK grows, the new office will further establish their foothold in the market and provide support to their local and European customers. With a vision of providing technology to improve today’s mass transit, Optibus is the first choice for passengers and cities alike.
“The UK transport sector is an amazing market not only because of its established network of mass transit, but also because there is great room for disruption,” said Amos Haggiag, CEO and Co-Founder of Optibus. “Existing software solutions for mass transit operations are dated, and the potential to innovate on services, reduce costs and optimise driver schedules is often overlooked. We are confident that our new UK presence, led by Dave Joshua, will deliver on the great potential we see in this market and support existing pilots we have with leading local players.”
Dave Joshua brings with him extensive strategic experience in directly advising clients in analytics, big data and optimization projects for FTSE and Fortune 100 companies for over 10 years. He previously worked as VP of Sales for Romonet, developed new regions from scratch as VP EMEA for Canara and European Sales Director for PowerShield and held other senior technology roles across multiple sectors. He also founded a not-for-profit technology graduate platform which launched from Google’s London HQ in 2012.
“I’m glad to join the Optibus team and set up its presence in the UK,” said Dave Joshua, UK Country Manager of Optibus. “The market potential is huge, and the immense business value behind transforming current technology promises great success. It’s important that our customers, partners and staff know that we are dedicated to building a solid foundation in the UK. Our vision involves helping the transport industry transform right here in the UK and we can only do this by investing in our people and business.”
