Olivier MERIOT

Expert in Railway Infrastructure

After acquiring 18 years of experience in Railway Infrastructure Engineering, I made my professional move to join Capgemini to face new challenges.

In my new role, I initially focused on Pre-sales activities to increase the win rate of technical and commercial offers in collaboration with the sales team and the market units. I also supported the technical teams at start-up and in the operational phases of the most structuring/ dimensioning projects of the railway sector.

I was a part of SNCF New Generation Supervision project: designing and implementing a new generation system to support SNCF’s new business processes in terms of monitoring and supervising the maintenance domain for its four geographical regions. It involves digitizing an entire industrial process using new technological approaches, such as IoT, Manufacturing Intelligence, geolocalization and mobile apps in order to process the life cycle of incidents from the start to the archive data collection in the field (through supervision to correcting the incident).

Currently, I am on expatriate mission in Gabon as Chief Digital Officer of the National Railway Company (SETRAG), stationed in Libreville (Gabon). Positioned at SETRAG within the General Management for the digital transformation of operations, I am responsible for track maintenance of rolling stock. My objectives involve helping the digitalization of industrial processes by relying on new technological approaches offered by digital, Lean approach and by working in close synergy with the operational excellence of SETRAG, the DSI and the Direction of Transformation Digital from the Eramet group.
