“Sam’s experience scaling and leading finance teams for technology-enabled mobility startups will be tremendously beneficial for Hayden AI,” said Chris Carson, CEO and founder of Hayden AI. “We need leaders who have both the agility and experience to take Hayden AI to the next level, and I am confident that we found that in Sam. I’m thrilled to have him onboard.”

“I’m passionate about technology that makes transportation safer, sustainable, and more efficient, which is part of what drew me to Hayden AI,” said Dundee. “The team at Hayden that Chris has built is what sold me to join. Hayden AI is an incredibly unique and exciting company in the AI space, deploying computer vision and edge technology to help transit agencies deliver safe, reliable, and accessible bus service that riders can depend on. I’m really excited to be part of this mission.”
