Trainline’s B2B arm Trainline Partner Solutions has recruited former Amadeus UK business travel commercial chief Liz Emmott in a newly created role.
She will be responsible for leading the growth of distribution and business solutions for the online rail ticketing firm as director of global distribution and business solutions.
Emmott started her career at American Express where she progressed through commercial roles in B2B payments and business travel (now Amex GBT), leading local, multinational and global teams.
She joined Amadeus in 2016 as UK sales director before becoming UK general manager and commercial director for business travel accounts for the UK, Ireland and Italy.
Trainline Partner Solutions president Champa Magesh said: “I’m thrilled to have Liz joining our team as we provide our business travel partners with even more ways to get rail at the heart of more journeys, in turn driving modal shift away from air and car travel.
“Our aim is to make the complex world of ticket retailing simpler, so more companies and their employees choose a greener way to travel.”
Emmott added: “With businesses and travellers becoming increasingly conscious of the impact of their travel on the environment, Trainline Partner Solutions has the deep rail tech expertise to make sustainable choices easier and more affordable to implement.”
