Ex-Bulb and Revolut execs join Airly

CleanTech company Airly has hired two new senior executives as the company expands operations across the UK and Europe.

The Krakow-based air quality tech business, which recently raised $5.3 million in funding, has hired Jonathan Gartside, former chief experience officer of UK energy company Bulb, as its new chief operating officer.

Rishi Stocker, who was previously head of partnerships at FinTech Revolut, will take on the role of commercial advisor at the company.

“I believe Airly will be pivotal in tackling the public health crisis of air quality,” said Jonathan Gartside, new chief operating officer, Airly. “I’m excited to join the team as they expand their activities in the UK and beyond.”

Gartside revealed that the company expects to build a London-based commercial team of 35 people, with aim to grow the business tenfold across the next two years.

“I look forward to bringing the Revolut spirit and culture to Airly,” said Rishi Stocker. “Air pollution kills millions of people every year but Airly has already had a phenomenal impact tackling this critical issue. I’m excited to help this talented team scale their technology across the globe and repair the air for more communities."

The company’s chief executive and co-founder, Wiktor Warchałowski, said that the appointments signal the business’ plans to expand quickly.
