DriveItAway Holdings, Inc., an automotive dealer with new mobility platforms and subscription to purchase technology, announced today that Rushab Doshi, noted entrepreneur-in-residence and new venture builder, has joined the newly public DriveItAway team as an advisor to their continued expansion in its program for large employers to enable vehicle ownership as both a means for entry-level employees to get to work and to improve lives.
“We have reached several milestones as a company recently in the development and expansion of our subscription-to-ownership program, including now being a public company and focusing on enabling entry-level folks the ability to benefit from driving and purchasing new EV vehicles currently available,” said John F. Possumato, founder and CEO of DriveItAway. “Adding Rush Doshi to our team as an advisor is truly the next stage of our national business expansion to lead the charge in getting our message to all employers throughout the nation that our vehicle ownership enablement program dramatically increases employee recruitment and retention results while clearly fulfilling social and sustainability goals.”
“I most recently have reviewed extensive data on the problems a lack of personal transportation has on the success companies have in hiring and retaining entry-level employees throughout the U.S., and helped pilot the unique DriveItAway subscription to ownership program to solve this problem in a way that not only substantially increased employer recruitment and retention, but also literally changes lives in a positive way,” says Rush Doshi, now strategic advisor at DriveItAway. “I joined the DriveItAway team as I think the need and timing is right to expand this solution dramatically for all companies that want greater success in employee recruitment and retention and are focused on tangible and measurable ESG goals. As DriveItAway now enables credit or down payment challenged employees the ability to drive to buy new EV vehicles, we squarely achieve both the 'E' and 'S' in auditable ESG achievements.”
Doshi has a wealth of experience in leading groundbreaking and technology-driven innovation. He was most recently GM/entrepreneur-in-residence at EmployBridge, a large industrial staffing firm in the U.S. with over 80,000 employees a week, focused on improving the lives of blue-collar workers, particularly in the area of transportation and vehicle access and ownership. He also has been entrepreneur-in-residence for Citi in the incubation of new products and services, and Innovation Director of MetLife (Asia), as well as founding and growing a number of his own technology-based start-ups.
Doshi will help the DriveItAway team introduce the program to large companies in order to more effectively recruit and retain entry-level employees and improve lives with access to personal transportation enabling ownership.
“Access to personal transportation, to get to and from work, is a very old problem that now can be solved in an easy, transparent and sustainable way through innovative technology and programs such as DriveItAway,” added Doshi.
