Lyft Welcomes Kristina Omari as VP of Corporate Development and Investor Relations

Today we welcome Kristina Omari to Lyft’s team as Vice President of Corporate Development and Investor Relations.

Kristina brings over 20 years of experience in mergers and acquisitions, strategy, and investment banking. She most recently led corporate development at Fitbit. Before that, she led the mergers and acquisition department at Adobe, during which time she oversaw more than $3 billion in transactions. Kristina also co-founded BuildUp, a nonprofit organization with the mission of connecting, mentoring, and educating entrepreneurs from under-represented backgrounds in tech.

Kristina joins a growing list of new team members, including Chief People Officer Emily Nishi and Vice President of Product Design Katie Dill. Kristina also joins at an exciting time for the company. This year Lyft has expanded its service to 95% of the U.S. population, made multiple acquisitions, and announced two funding rounds totaling more than $2 billion.

“We couldn’t be more excited to welcome Kristina to our growing team,” said Lyft Chief Financial Officer Brian Roberts. “She brings a proven track record of helping companies grow in a fast-paced environment. Her skills and experience will help Lyft continue to expand as we work toward our our mission of improving people’s lives with the world’s best transportation.”

“I’m thrilled to be part of this incredible team and mission,” said Kristina Omari. “Lyft has had an amazing year, and I can’t wait to help the company continue delivering for passengers and drivers.”
