ofo Appoints Former Uber Executive as Vice President Overseeing U.S. Operations
Founded in 2014, ofo is the world’s largest station-free bicycle-sharing platform. Following launches in cities across the United States, it has announced the hire of Chris Nakutis Taylor to run its U.S. operations.
Taylor joined Uber as one of the first 250 employees, and was most recently a regional general manager of South & West for UberEATS.
“We are thrilled to bring Chris on to run ofo’s U.S. operations,” said Dai Wei, founder and chief executive officer. “Since launching in August, we have seen ofo taking off in the U.S., where we have enormous potential. Chris’s strong background in tech, whether at his own startup or his time at Uber, make him the right person to expand ofo even further.”
Taylor attended Northwestern University and the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business. He is based in San Francisco.
