Zendrive, a driving analytics startup, has added an industry heavyweight to its board. Padmasree Warrior, the U.S. CEO of Chinese electric car startup NextEV, is joining the company’s now three-person board.
Warrior joined NextEV last year, coming from Cisco where she was its chief technology and strategy officer. Before that she was the CTO at Motorola.
Zendrive was founded by former Googlers Jonathan Matus and Pankaj Risbood and has investment from Sherpa Capital, BMW and Max Levchin. Warrior already serves on the boards of Box, Microsoft, Cornell and Gap Inc., and was recently tapped to be an adviser to Sherpa Capital.
