Beat, one of the fastest growing ride-hailing apps in Latin America, part of the FREE NOW group, the ride-hailing joint venture of BMW and Daimler, has expanded its executive team with the appointment of new Chief Product Officer (CPO), Jason Tunstall. The announcement coincides with a year of strong momentum for Beat, as it continues to expand its product portfolio and strengthens its presence in Latin America.
With oversight of strategic product direction, Jason will lead Beat’s product teams to deliver an amazing customer experience, ensuring product features and functions align with the objectives and goals of the company.
“I am thrilled to be joining Beat at such an exciting time for the company and to be able to further develop solutions to empower the mobility of our customers safely, comfortably and affordably, while increasing sustainability. Beat has built a world class product portfolio which provides a great foundation on which to build the next chapter of our product evolution”, Jason highlighted.
“I am impressed by the company’s culture, its diverse and talented teams as well as their ambition, and I am really looking forward to a challenging and enjoyable future at Beat.”
