It’s an exciting time to be at Lyft! Today we’re happy to announce that we’ve added a world-class executive to the leadership team. Join us in welcoming Jon Alferness to Lyft, our new Vice President of Growth and Marketplace.
An industry veteran, Jon joins us after spending 13 years at Google where he was most recently the VP of Product for the Shopping and Travel teams. During his time at Google, Jon drove the development of more than 4 of Google’s ad products, growing them into multi-billion dollar businesses. He was also recently Senior Vice President of Ads & Commerce at Pinterest.
In his role at Lyft, Jon will be responsible for accelerating the growth of the business as we continue to change the way people think about car ownership and transportation. He will oversee the growth marketing and product growth teams.
