(Newcastle upon Tyne, 18 September, 2017)  Nomad Digital, the world’s leading provider of passenger and fleet connectivity solutions to the railway industry, has appointed a new West Coast Sales Manager in the US.

Mark Flores has 25 years’ experience in the rail and communication industries and a deep understanding of wireless technologies, and the passenger and maintenance benefits of ICT in the transport industry.

Prior to joining Nomad, Mark held senior sales positions at Lilee Systems and Cornet Technology, where he was responsible for building the sales pipeline and driving revenue growth while aligning business strategy closely with customer needs.  He also led the Los Angeles Department of Transportation team updating their transport network from an analogue to digital system.
