Biography: Mark Holt, Cheif Technology Officer, Trainline

Mark is at the helm of Trainline’s disruptive technology, driving forward our innovative vision and the infrastructure delivering this.

Before joining Trainline in March 2014, Mark founded Europe’s first secure eCommerce site in 1995 and has led innovative teams at companies such as Capital Radio, FT.com, GE Capital, Trayport and CPA Global.  He quite simply loves technology and passionately believes that empowered teams of smart people will shape the future of smarter rail travel for customers.

Apart from being a technology-whizz, Mark enjoys long heavy CrossFit workouts, watching magnificent Welsh rugby victories, reading classic literature and playing Virtual Reality games with his three children.

His favourite train journey is from Verona to Venice – Verona is a beautiful city, the trains are comfortable and fast, and walking out of Santa Lucia straight on to the Grand Canal is a truly magical experience; the only way to arrive in Venice.
