CODA Automotive Press Release
KEVIN CZINGER, PRESIDENT & CEO
Growing up with two older brothers who were local legends as street racers on the west side of Cleveland, Kevin developed a life-long love of automobiles at an early age. Working with his brothers in their backyard shop, he learned about autos from the ground up and dreamed about building cool cars.
Since then, Kevin has been a car mechanic, a Yalie (where he played football and earned a Law Degree), a teacher and an executive, but most of all he’s been a leader. With a balance of pragmatism and ingenuity in the face of adversity, he believes in building, coaching and motivating highly driven individuals to accomplish the unachievable.
With extensive operating experience in companies such as Goldman Sachs and Bertelsmann AG, and a track record of performance in start-up and emerging growth companies like Webvan Group and Global Signal, Kevin has proven that he’s got the knowledge base and tenacity to bring an all-electric car to market. His role at CODA Automotive as the President and CEO realizes his childhood dream and amalgamates his passions: cars, technology, global connectivity, learning and nature.
