Tesla Gives Lyft a Gift, Head of Sales and Service Jon McNeill

Tesla’s head of Head of Sales and Service Jon McNeill is now recruited as Lyft’s COO. While this might seem to be a good appointment, it comes at a time when Tesla shows some very grim financials. Lyft has been very active lately, stealing talent from Tesla before.


Lyft has recently completed a successful capital injection from CaptalG, an Alphabet company, injecting them with $1 billion. This money will be used by McNeill to boost Lyft's performance and continue to increase its growth from a very successful 2017 into 2018.

McNeill left Tesla after missing out on a $700,000 bonus that was linked to milestones in sales performance. The sales were linked to the Tesla 3 project that had major issues and thwarted the company's capability to meet sales projections.

McNeil is known for his hands-on approach and will even talk to customers directly and in person to help solve issues.

Its about time that Lyft introduced some overdrive into their operations. While they might have caught up a bit in the US to Uber, without some new talent driving them forward, Lyft wont gain much more ground.
