John is the Co-Founder and COO of Zimride & Lyft. John (luckily) left Lehman Brothers in early 2008, where he spent two years after graduating from Cornell University’s Hotel School. He moved from New York City to Palo Alto in July of 2008 by using Zimride to carpool across America.
John and Zimride have been featured in the Wall Street Journal, New York Times and on ABC World News. He was recognized by BusinessWeek in 2009 as one of ‘America’s Best Young Entrepreneur’s 25 and under’.
Since 2007, John has lead Zimride’s business development efforts forging over 150 university and corporate clients, as well as exclusive partnerships with Zipcar and Facebook. His favorite Zimride is San Francisco to Los Angeles and his favorite Lyft is from home to work.
