Lucy Prior said:

 “It has been an exceptionally tough decision to leave the Rail Alliance which really has been home for me for the last four years.  I consider myself truly lucky to have worked with an amazing team and also to have been able to forge deep working relationships with so many of our members, collaborators and stakeholders.  My role at RTS is a wonderful opportunity to apply much of the experience I have acquired at the Rail Alliance and elsewhere”.

Colin Flack, Chairman of the Rail Alliance, said:

 “Lucy’s energy and sheer enthusiasm for what she does has been exemplary and she will be sorely missed not only be us but also members with whom she has become a very familiar face as a key member of the Rail Alliance team. We wish Lucy the very best of luck and we look forward to working with RTS Solutions as a new member”.

RTS Solutions is a transportation software engineering company that specialises in end-to-end integrated solutions from the management of incidents and faults to work sites & resources. They also develop machine plant and asset/inventory management applications.
