2019 is off to a great start as we continue to bring top talent into the Lyft family. The newest addition to Lyft’s leadership team is Michelle DeBella who joins as our Vice President of Finance Strategy.
Michelle is a dynamic and results-oriented finance executive with more than 20 years of experience. She was mostly recently the Chief Audit Executive at Uber, where she nearly doubled the internal audit team’s size and scale. Michelle also spent eight years at Hewlett-Packard (and later Hewlett-Packard Enterprise), where she was Vice President of Internal Audit overseeing a global team of nearly 250 people.
At Lyft, Michelle will be responsible for architecting Lyft’s finance organization for rapid scale and growth.
“I had the pleasure of working with Michelle for several years at HPE and am excited to partner with her once again at Lyft,” said Maggie Wilderotter, Chairwoman of Lyft’s Audit Committee and a member of the Board of Directors. “Michelle’s pragmatic and collaborative approach to financial leadership is exactly what we need to position Lyft for future success and grow the business responsibly.”
Welcome to Lyft, Michelle!
