Appointed CEO in April 2019, Dan Grossman has been at the forefront of the shared economy, leading shared mobility initiatives at Ford, General Motors and Zipcar. Dan burst onto the shared economy scene in 2009, introducing Zipcar to nearly 80 new markets (if you're wondering, Hawaii was the most challenging) and seeing the company through its Initial Public Offering (IPO) and acquisition by Avis. With that experience in hand, Dan became a founding member of the leadership team for General Motors' mobility brand, Maven, where he served as Chief Operating Officer and helped create the technology, product and led all go-to-market strategies. His success at Maven led to his first stint at Chief Executive Officer at Chariot, Ford's app-based shuttle service. Dan graduated from Sacramento State, where he studied business and finance and played lacrosse. He's still an athlete: his favorite mode of transportation is running.
