Bike scheme AI platform replaces CEO ahead of growth


Bike scheme AI platform Stage Intelligence has brought Tom Nutley on board as its new chief executive officer.

The appointment marks the next phase of growth for the company as it uses its BICO Artificial Intelligence platform to solve an increasing number of challenges in mobility and logistics.

Nutley has a track record of success in business development and nurturing Bike Share Scheme customers across the globe.

He has spent the last two years expanding Stage Intelligence’s presence in the Americas and Europe while enabling millions of riders to benefit from optimal Bike Share Scheme experiences.

Nutley assumes the day-to-day leadership of the company and succeeds Toni Kendall-Troughton, who will maintain her role on the board of Stage Intelligence.

“It is a tremendous honour to serve as CEO for Stage Intelligence,” said Nutley.

“I’ve seen so much accomplished over the last two years and I believe our BICO AI platform can do even more to optimise how people experience transportation and their urban environments.

“We’re already seeing more people using Bike Share Schemes globally thanks to our platform and as we deploy in new cities we’re helping schemes to expand and grow.

“I’m excited for our future and look forward to pushing our platform to new places and solving our customers’ challenges”.

Stage Intelligence has deployed its BICO AI platform in Bike Share Schemes in major cities like Paris, Helsinki, Chicago and Guadalajara, Mexico.

It has success in creating new efficiencies in Bike Share Scheme management and enabling the optimised distribution of bikes across a scheme. The result is cost-savings for the scheme operators, growth in ridership and an enhanced rider experience.

“Tom is passionate about our business and is dedicated to our mission of solving some of the biggest challenges in transportation and logistics with AI,” said Kendall-Troughton.

“Over the last two years, he has been on the road telling our story and helping our customers to understand how AI can transform how they operate.

“Going forward, I see Tom driving our growth in new areas that can benefit from AI like dockless bikes, electric scooter schemes as well as taxis and other forms of transportation. It is an exciting time at Stage Intelligence and Tom is a great pick to lead the business into the future.”

The BICO AI platform enables users to collect, manage and visualise vast amounts of data and turn this data into actionable insights to drive growth within businesses.

It enables users to automate processes to increase agility and adaptability whilst moving away from traditional reactive manual processes.

Over the coming months, Stage Intelligence will be announcing new products and services that use the BICO AI platform to support the growth of a range of transportation types. It also has schemes coming online across North and South America.
