Getaround (NYSE: GETR) (“Getaround'' or the “Company”), the world’s first connected carsharing marketplace, today announced that its Board of Directors has appointed former Silvus Technologies CFO and former Getaround SVP of Finance, Risk & Strategy Eduardo Iniguez as CEO, effective immediately. Iniguez also joined the Getaround Board of Directors.

Getaround’s outgoing CEO, Sam Zaid, will continue to serve as a member of the board of directors.

Prior to his role as CFO at Silvus Technologies, Iniguez served as SVP of Finance, Risk & Strategy for Getaround. Prior to Getaround, Iniguez was CEO and CFO of HyreCar, Inc. and successfully managed the sale of its assets to Getaround in May 2023. Previous to that, he was the VP of Corporate Finance & Accounting for AllClear, a private equity-backed aerospace company where he was responsible for 11 business unit P&Ls globally.

“I am thrilled to return to Getaround to help accelerate the Company’s growth and path to profitability while reaching its incredible potential,” said Iniguez. “I am committed to our car owners and renters to be the carsharing platform of choice while we pave the way for long-term, sustainable growth. I look forward to rolling up my sleeves with the team to focus on execution and delivering results.”

“We are pleased to welcome Eduardo back to lead Getaround into its next phase of growth,” said Mudrick. “His track record of transformational leadership and passion for the carsharing space make him uniquely situated to take the helm as the Company focuses on revenue growth and a path to profitability. I also want to thank Sam Zaid for his leadership and commitment to Getaround’s mission and people since the Company’s inception.”

Founder, board member, and outgoing CEO, Sam Zaid, expressed his excitement about the transition, stating, "As I step back from my day-to-day involvement, I am confident Eduardo will steer Getaround towards profitability and unlock continued success as an innovative, category-defining company in digital carsharing."
