The combined Company, according to the announcement, will be led by a highly qualified management team with experience in technological innovation and automotive-related logistics. Dropcar's Co-founder and CEO, Spencer Richardson, will assume the position of CEO of the merged entity, while Mr. Giordano will resume his position as a member of the Board of Directors. Mr. Richardson, a technology innovator, previously built FanBridge into a premier Fan Audience CRM platform with over 600 million fan relationships. On the other hand, Mr. Newman will continue to lead the Company's business development, while leveraging his 20 years of experience in the legal, real estate, and parking garage sectors.
