Our entire team are approachable – from our Managing Director to the team in the workshop – and are skilled to help with any of your needs – call us.

“That’s the way things have always been done” is never an acceptable answer for you or for the IMTRAM team. 

We are unique, we are flexible and we work with our customers and our partners to keep your networks running on time.


IMTRAM is led by industry veteran Robert Cavallo and managed by General Manager Sonia Whiteman. Sonia has over a decade of experience and is responsible for the growth in the range of IMTRAM products and services.

Peter Hayes, our Sales and Marketing Manager brings a wealth of knowledge and earned respect from his roles at both Austbreck, Siemens and Invensys (among others) and is backed up by Rick Buckland in Business Development.

Our strong service team is headed by Mark Cavallo, who with over 12 years of experience and specialised training with H&K and Secheron products is perfectly placed to lead change in the servicing space.

The IMTRAM team is underpinned by a solid logistics and administration team who all work in harmony as an informed, inclusive group sharing the Cavallo family values to deliver smart solutions for the rail industry.

ROBERT CAVALLOManaging Director
Robert has 2 degrees; Electrical Engineering and Chemical Engineering. Prior to taking over Imtram in 2001, Robert carried out design and project management roles in the Oil & Gas and Chemical Industries for customers such as ESSO, Shell, Orica (formerly ICI Australia) and Santos.

As Managing Director he steers the Company and is responsible for financial, administrative and corporate matters and sometimes doesn’t mind rolling up his sleeves and getting his hands dirty in the workshop.

Sonia started at Imtram in 2008 and is responsible for the growth in the range of products IMTRAM supplies.

With a background in accouting at Price Waterhouse and Business Development at Orica and Incitec Pivot Limited, she has helped steer IMTRAM into a more diverse and innovative company.

Sonia clearly doesn’t enjoy getting much rest as her farm, sheep, bee-keeping and lavender distilling ensures the remainder of her free time is fully occupied.

MARK CAVALLOService Manager

He enjoys the challenge of new projects and takes great pride in the work undertaken in our various service areas.

Mark has a bit of a LEGO addiction and also builds websites in his spare time in case you know anyone who needs one.

PETER HAYESSales & Marketing Manager

Peter is focussed on expanding the product range and service offerings at IMTRAM and helping to establish closer relationships with our existing and new customers.

Peter likes to dress well and always looks sharp. But for some reason he doesn’t like to have his photo taken.

RICK BUCKLANDBusiness Development

BEN LEWISWarehouse

Ben is the rock star of IMTRAM, as he is easily mistaken for a tall Ed Sheeran.

Summer brings a wonderful energy and enthusiasm to the team. She likes to keep our kitchen stocked with delicious treats and wonders why are all putting on a few extra kilos.
