As Remix turns five years old, we’re excited to enter the next chapter for our company. We’ve seen incredible momentum since our founding in 2014, from working with a single transit agency in the United States to partnering with 325+ cities and transit agencies across the world today. We’re proud that our customers have chosen our platform to bring together the complete transportation picture and help them build more livable cities.
As Remix looks ahead to the next five years, we are excited to announce our new Chief Executive Officer Tiffany Chu. Tiffany is a Remix co-founder and formerly served as Chief Operating Officer. She brings a wealth of urban planning, transportation and design experience as an MIT graduate, past fellow at Code for America, alumna of Y Combinator, and the first UX hire at Zipcar. When she’s not at Remix, she serves as Commissioner at the San Francisco Department of the Environment and sits on the San Francisco Congestion Pricing Policy Committee.
We’re grateful to Sam Hashemi, our first CEO and co-founder, who transitions his role to Board Member and Strategic Advisor.
Tiffany is supported by a strong executive team, including Daniel Getelman, current Chief Technology Officer and Remix co-founder. As part of this leadership change, Nichole Jordan is being promoted to Chief Operating Officer, and Tom Mercer is being promoted to Chief Product Officer.
Sam’s message to the team, passing the baton to Tiffany, is below.
" This past month marked our five year anniversary as a company — five years! A moment like this is an opportunity to reflect on how far we’ve come. I couldn’t be more proud of what we’ve accomplished as a team since founding the company:
I wanted to thank every person who made the last five years possible — my gratitude knows no bounds. Now that we’ve reached the five year mark, I’ve been spending some time asking myself: what’s next? One of the hard decisions I’ve made is that this is the right time to pass the baton to a new leader to continue the good work we’ve done. As I asked who would be the right fit, I had three priorities in mind:
I’m lucky enough to have worked with someone who embodies these traits through-and-through — my co-founder Tiffany Chu. Starting December 1st, I will transition my role to Board Member and Strategic Advisor, and Tiffany will take on the role of CEO and lead Remix in its next chapter. I couldn’t be more excited to see where she takes the company!"
In the past five years, Remix grew from a team of four to 65 passionate individuals dedicated to serving 325+ cities around the world. Thank you to Sam Hashemi for your fearless leadership.
