Herzog congratulates our PTC expert, Travis Rollings, who has been selected as a Railway Age 2020 Fast Tracker–10 Under 40 honoree. The awards represent the “best of the best” rising stars who are making a real impact on the railroad industry.
A little background on Travis: A few years after receiving a Bachelor of Science in Information Systems from the University of Texas at Arlington, he began work at Herzog Technologies, Inc. as a systems engineer supporting railroad dispatch maintenance projects. These projects included the critical infrastructure on which commuter railroads such as Trinity Railway Express (TRE), New Mexico Rail Runner, Denton County Transportation Authority (DCTA), and North County Transit District (NCTD) operate. Travis’ value to the team was quickly realized as he excelled at working within complex information systems and adapted well to evolving technologies.
Consistently delivering quality work, Travis earned a promotion to Director of Back Office Systems in 2017. At age 29, he is now in charge of managing Herzog’s Office Systems team.
“Travis takes great pride in building systems that simplify technology. His ability to apply industry knowledge to technology and then relate it to each client’s distinct objectives, purpose, and scope is exceptional,” says Jim Hanlon, President of Herzog Technologies, Inc.
Travis has been instrumental in the creation of Herzog’s PTC Hosting solution starting at its inception. He built the initial concepts and business models, drove technology decisions and strategic partnerships, assembled the team of technology professionals, and eventually implemented the system that today supports nine different short line and commuter railroads.
