Turo opens new Scottsdale offices with official ceremony

 

Scottsdale, Arizona, May 17, 2018 - Pioneering peer-to-peer car sharer Turo announces today the official opening of its Scottsdale, Arizona offices. To celebrate the milestone, Turo has planned an official ribbon cutting at its new location.

The ribbon cutting will occur from 6:30 to 8:30 PM at the new offices, which are located at 4110 N. Scottsdale Road. Opening remarks will be given by Michelle Peacock, Vice President and Head of Government Relations at Turo.

"Innovation and technology are key drivers in Scottsdale's economic growth and we are excited to see Turo at the forefront of peer-to-peer car sharing. Their decision to expand operations and make an additional investment is a testament to the positive business environment we have created in Scottsdale," said Mayor W.J. "Jim" Lane.

Representatives from Turo include Alex Benn, President; Andrew Mok, Chief Marketing Officer; Michelle Peacock, Vice President and Head of Government Relations; Tristam Hewitt, Head of CS and Claims; Steve Webb, Senior Director of Communications & Community; Tyler Hamilton, Facilities Manager and Chris Witmer, Community Manager.

The Turo event will also include some fun added bonuses. Guests and employees will enjoy drink trucks, a GIFbooth, a DJ and free Turo merchandise.

Turo operated from a DeskHub in Scottsdale, beginning in February 2018. Turo chose Scottsdale for its first expansion site outside of San Francisco because of the region's existing talent and to bolster its success in one of its biggest markets.

Turo, founded in 2009 and headquartered in San Francisco, has grown to operate in over 5,500 cities in North America and has safely facilitated over 1 million rental days to date. The average active US member makes USD $625 per month renting out a car in the marketplace.
