Tesco veteran Luke Bayliss joins Trigo

Former Tesco veteran Luke Bayliss has joined autonomous retail specialist Trigo as senior operations manager.

At Tesco, Bayliss held such roles as transformation project manager and change manager over a 15 year period. Tesco is also an investor in Trigo.

Last year, the supermarket giant unveiled its first high street checkout-free store, powered by Trigo tech.

The GetGo store is located in High Holborn, just 120 yards down the road from an Amazon Fresh “Just Walk Out” store.

The store taps AI and computer vision technology, enabling customers to walk into the store, check in via a Tesco Clubcard QR code and exit without visiting a checkout.

“Last month after 15 years I made the difficult decision to leave my role in Tesco, to pursue a new opportunity. My journey followed the old cliche of a part time job turning into a full time career,” Luke Bayliss said via LinkedIn.

“My career followed many years working in different level of roles within a store, to then moving into the office to use this knowledge and deliver multiple projects within the Convenience Transformation team.

“This whole chapter provided me with great opportunities to learn and work with some talented people.

“Moving on to new beginnings and moving not too far away from a project I have been passionate about, I have joined Trigo to continue the journey of reshaping the retail experience.

“Thank you and goodbye to everyone I have worked with over my time in Tesco and a big hello to everyone at Trigo.”
