Founder & CEO


Anton, 30, graduated from the University of St. Gallen, Switzerland. Having never passed his driving license, Anton was reliant on taxis and public transport while living in Zurich, but even in Switzerland, the quality of service varies wildly: he was once even asked to step out of a taxi for yawning. That was when he decided to create a service for those who would never compromise comfort and safety. In 2010, Anton started Wheely as an online platform for booking taxis and minicabs. Two years later, he decided to switch focus to the premium ride-hailing market and today’s Wheely was born. The brand has moved from strength to strength ever since. Wheely is HQ’ed in London and employs over 150 people in the UK, Russia, and France.
