2020.01.28

Mr. Hernlund joins Einride as Chief Commercial Officer on March 30 where he will lead the company’s business development & sales team. He brings a wealth of knowledge on how to build and scale big commercial operations in fast growing tech companies. During his Google career, Jonas built multiple hundred million dollar businesses from the ground up. Most recently he designed and launched Google’s Investor & Startup operations in Northern Europe, building an accelerator for top startups and developing deep relations with both Private Equity and Venture Capital firms across the region.

Before joining Google he co-founded an eCommerce platform; was a strategy consultant with Deloitte and Accenture; and has been Head of Business Development at PostNord, the leading postal and logistics operator in the Nordics.

“Developing our value proposition and generating new business while continuing to drive demand for sustainable transport are key focus areas for Einride. I am glad to welcome Jonas to the team, he brings both talent and experience and has the right profile and background to deliver on our commercial agenda. He is an experienced leader with a background in both tech and the logistics industry and has a proven track record of building and scaling commercial operations” says Robert Falck, founder and CEO of Einride.

“Our generation’s biggest challenge is to solve the climate crisis. Einride has an amazing team, a moonshot ambition and brilliant products to help solve the crisis and build a massive business while doing it. I’m thrilled to join the company at this stage to double down on it’s customer focus and help transport intensive companies transition to a cost competitive, safe and sustainable solution for road freight transport that has the potential to reduce customers carbon footprint by up to 90%,” says Jonas Hernlund.
