Bird, the scooter-sharing startup, joined by Dennis Cinelli and Yibo Ling, former Uber employee. The company is making considerable strides in terms of new addition of electric scooters and the total number of rides as well.

"Dennis and Yibo both bring valuable experience expanding markets and I look forward to working with them closely as we continue on our mission."

The move by Dennis Cinelli has come after the Nelson Chai, the former CEO of insurance and warranty provider, Warranty Group, as the chief financial officer.

Last week, Bird unveiled its new electric scooter, Bird Zero, which was claimed to have 60 percent more battery life, and better ride stability than the original model.

"We call it Bird Zero because it's the first vehicle we've designed and engineered ourselves specifically for the shared electric scooter space," Bird CEO Travis VanderZanden told TechCrunch.

With this scooter, Bird also planned to deliver the vehicle to the doorstep of the customer, which is something new in the industry.
