Co-Founder and CEO, Metropolis
Alexander Israel

Alex Israel is the Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Metropolis Technologies, an AI and computer vision platform that makes real-world transactions frictionless, so people can live their lives with even greater ease than we experience online. Alex is an AI innovator and leader who is changing the way we move through the world. He has applied Metropolis’ proprietary technology to a notoriously challenging sector - parking - and has transformed the cumbersome activity into an entirely checkout-free, drive-in-drive-out experience. Metropolis currently operates at more than 500 locations across the country, servicing more than 5 million members. In 2023, Metropolis reached an agreement to acquire parking giant SP+, a $1.5 billion acquisition giving Metropolis access to 360 cities and 50 million consumers across North America. And he’s just getting started: Alex has a vision for putting Metropolis’s tech to work to transform every aspect of living, working, and playing in cities. Alex co-founded Metropolis in 2017 and quickly scaled the company through the acquisition of Premier Parking, partnerships with Uber and leading real estate companies, including BedRock Detroit, and by raising $1.7 billion in Series C funding. He brought this same vision and leadership to a company he co-founded in 2009, ParkMe. As ParkMe’s COO, Alex built the company into the world’s most comprehensive dynamic, real-time parking database, and assembled a financial exit to global traffic intelligence behemoth INRIX.
