Rod Maton

CEO and Founder

Rod has worked in the rail industry for over 30 years. He started his career in a very different industry - making film documentaries for the likes of the OECD, Pan American Airways and the British Sugar Corporation before launching a marketing and advertising agency working with many clients and amongst them Netherlands Railways. It was through this work that Rod saw a real opportunity as the growth of international rail travel started to take off and he became the sole agent for Netherlands Railways. Rod has been called the original disruptor of the international rail industry, using his (at that time) very different background in sales and marketing to build relationships and to think about the technologies that would form part of the growth of the industry. Since then he has grown and evolved the business to become both a technology provider and a ticket agent, servicing both the leisure and corporate markets. When he is not working, Rod’s real passion is motor racing and he can often be found racing his own car or as a spectator.
