Former HyreCar CEO and chief financial officer Eduardo Iniguez now will be senior vice president of finance and strategy, while former HyreCar chief operating officer AJ Lee now will serve as vice president of gig marketplace.
Through this acquisition and new executives in place, Getaround said it expects to accelerate its path to profitability, while unlocking additional earning potential for hosts and enhanced flexibility of quality vehicle options on the Getaround marketplace.
“I am thrilled to welcome both Eduardo and AJ, as well as additional members of the HyreCar team, to Getaround,” Getaround CEO and founder Sam Zaid said. “Eduardo’s operational expertise and financial planning experience will accelerate Getaround’s ability to deliver sustained growth and position the company for long-term profitability. Additionally, AJ is a proven growth and operations executive that will play a key role driving the growth of our gig marketplace unit going forward.”
