About Ara Shikhalislami

Ara Shikhalislami joined Transreport in 2017 when it was still a small company based in the West Midlands with fewer than 5 employees. In less than 2 years, this fast-growing company now has operations in London, Hong Kong and Australia, and their Passenger Assist solution has been procured by the Rail Delivery Group for national deployment in 2019.
