The car-sharing marketplace for ride-shares company, HyreCar Inc., recently announced they have hired Brian Allan to be their Lead Automotive OEM and Dealer-Based Shared Mobility Initiatives and Strategic Alliances.
“Demand for qualified ridesharing vehicles greatly exceeds current supply and fleet owners like auto dealers are the natural progression of institutional supply. We are now poised to capitalize on that vehicle supply opportunity, which we believe can lead us to exponentially increase our revenues”Tweet this
Allan brings 40 years of experience within the automotive industry to HyreCar. During his 30-year tenure, Allan led the growth of the world-renowned Galpin Premier Automotive Group, the luxury division of one of the largest volume dealer groups in the nation, Galpin Motors. Mr. Allan is a respected voice of authority, thought leader, and widely recognized technology advocate in the retail automotive sales and service industry.
“I’m excited to bring an industry veteran of Mr. Allan’s caliber with deep OEM and dealer relationships onto the team. Brian’s passion for our business model will help us capitalize on the significant growth opportunities associated with assisting ridesharing companies like Uber and Lyft to onboard drivers with vehicles, along with other upcoming opportunities,” said Joe Furnari, CEO of HyreCar. “Demand for qualified ridesharing vehicles greatly exceeds current supply and fleet owners like auto dealers are the natural progression of institutional supply. We are now poised to capitalize on that vehicle supply opportunity, which we believe can lead us to exponentially increase our revenues,” added Mr. Furnari.
With the addition of Mr. Allan, HyreCar will continue to leverage its proven business model of carsharing for ridesharing while providing a ‘path to purchase’ for rideshare drivers. “I am excited to join such an innovative and dynamic company during a pivotal point of tremendous growth opportunity. HyreCar offers a complete solution for automotive franchised and independent dealers to earn revenue streams on otherwise idle inventory while selling more cars. In fact, it’s my personal belief that the HyreCar platform will exceed 10,000 vehicles by end of 2019, while helping established dealers enter the Mobility as a Service business,” said Allan. He added, “In the face of potential headwinds for traditional dealer vehicle sales, HyreCar’s platform creates new sources of revenue for every dealership department including new car, used car, parts, finance, and of course, vehicle service, by leveraging their current infrastructure.”
