Bringing Cities
to Life

Ascendal Group Founder and Executive Chairman, Adam Leishman, provides a proven track record of transformation in some of the world’s leading cities, including London, Singapore and Sydney.  Adam was a cofounder of Tower Transit in 2013 and led the business as Group CEO during its rapid growth and success achieved both in London and Singapore, epitomised by being awarded British International Company of the Year in 2017.

Inspired by what was achieved at Tower Transit, in particular the transformation that occurred in Singapore and the impact that it had on millions of people’s lives, Adam founded Ascendal Group with a specific focus on empowering cities that desire radical transformation.

Ascendal is a unique organisation that combines multiple disciplines, but all with the same focus – bringing cities to life through public transport.  Ascendal aims to implement world class solutions to deliver step changes in how public transportation is perceived, accepted and delivered.

Delivering high quality public transport systems is one of the major challenges that cities and governments around the world face today. The challenge, however, is not an isolated transport issue as it should be approached with the overall development strategy of a city at its core. Through combining mobility with technology, real estate, financing solutions and strategic advisory, we provide a unique platform for change, a proven approach for delivering transformation to the world’s top cities.
