Lyft’s momentum is going strong as we add another key member to our executive team! We’re excited to announce that Julia Haywood has joined Lyft as Vice President of Strategy.
Julia will own our market expansion strategy, which will include identifying, evaluating, and executing on growth opportunities for the business.
Travel and transportation have always been passions for Julia, and she brings more than 15 years of industry experience to her new role. Prior to joining Lyft, Julia was the Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer at United Airlines and was responsible for a $40 billion P&L and the company’s overall commercial strategy. Before United, Julia spent nearly 11 years at Boston Consulting Group, where she was one of the fasted-promoted partners at the firm.
“I’m excited to see Julia make a huge impact here at Lyft,” said Jon McNeill, Chief Operating Officer at Lyft. “We are in a period of hyper-growth, and as the complexity of our product offerings and organization increases, Julia’s hands-on approach to tackling challenges is just what we need to best position us for the future.”
