Rise Digital Media, a leading provider of mobile apps and digital services to the bus and coach industry, is delighted to announce that Jonathan Slade has joined the team as Senior Account Director.

Jonathan, who has held a number of senior roles with suppliers to the public transport industry over the last 10 years, took up his new role on Tuesday 9 May.

Most recently Jonathan was formerly Head of UK Sales at INEO Systrans UK (digital intelligence) and prior to this spent 9 years as UK Sales & Key Account Manager at Icomera UK, a world leading provider of open Internet connectivity and application platforms for public transport.

Speaking on the appointment, Scott James, CEO at Rise DM said:

“I am delighted to be welcoming Jonathan to Rise Digital Media. John's wide industry experience coupled with his strong technical background is a great addition to our account management and business development team.  We have made significant progress with the rollout of our integrated software systems in the last few years, providing many of the UK’s leading bus and coach operators with transformational digital solutions – vehicle (BODS) tracking, mobile ticketing, cashless payment systems, onboard screens/announcements, passenger & driver apps – and we continue to invest into the platform, our products and our highly skilled team members. 

“Jon’s understanding of our industry, along with a great knowledge of digital transport solutions will help our customers to achieve the very best outcomes, improve efficiencies and enhance passenger experiences.”     

Jonathan added:

“I can’t wait to join the team at Rise at what is an exciting time for the business.  With many operations now required to provide live vehicle location and tracking data, and services needing to offer audio and visual onboard announcements, I look forward to engaging with customers old and new on how the suite of products and services can help them meet these new requirements.”
