Synectics appoints Dr Kerstin Wendt to head its German Operations


Synectics plc (AIM: SNX): Synectics has appointed Dr Kerstin Wendt to lead its growing German business with major public transport operators. Dr Wendt will be based in Synectics' new Berlin office as the business brings its German operations closer to key customer locations.


Dr Wendt becomes part of the Synectics team following 13 years in public transport operations and transportation technology businesses. In her new role, she will lead implementation of Synectics' next-generation operational management system for S-Bahn Berlin (a subsidiary of Deutsche Bahn) and head up the relationship with long-term U-Bahn client Berliner Verkehrsbetriebe (BVG).


Commenting on the appointment, Greg Alcorn, Director of Global Sales and Customer Success at Synectics commented: "I am delighted to welcome Kerstin to the business as we drive ahead with strategically important urban transport projects and customers.


"Kerstin is ideally positioned to develop our German business. Her experience within the urban transport industry and knowledge of digital technology in transport operations, will enable our clients to maximise their investment in our software solutions. 


"At the same time, she will play a key role as we open up new opportunities for the innovative security and operations management solution we are implementing for S-Bahn Berlin as part of its new Security and Service (4S) Center development. New collaborative applications for workforce management with interactive mobile capabilities are set to transform the capability and reach of urban transport control room operations."


Dr Wendt joins Synectics from VBB (Verkehrsverbund Berlin-Brandenburg) where she led the development of fares and digital ticketing for the Berlin-Brandenburg urban transport network. Before VBB, Dr Wendt was part of IVU Traffic Technologies, working on a range of passenger information, fleet management and digital ticketing projects in the DACH (Austria, Germany, and Switzerland) region.
