I’m so pleased to share that Elisa de Martel, a finance executive with 20+years of experience leading private and public companies, is joining Waymo as our Chief Financial Officer. Elisa brings powerful value to Waymo with her depth of financial leadership experience spanning both tech and traditional automotive industries. Elisa’s global, strategic perspective positions us well as we deploy and commercialize the Waymo Driver across multiple geographies and vehicle platforms.

Most recently, Elisa served as CFO for Carbon, a venture-backed 3D printing technology, where she was responsible for Carbon’s overall financial activities and global finance organization. Prior to joining Carbon, Elisa was with Apple for 11 years, where she served in a variety of financial roles, ending her run there as Director of Manufacturing Finance. Elisa earned a Master’s degree in Political Economy from the University of Essex, and a Master’s degree in Business Administration from the EDHEC Business School.

“I’m very excited to be joining Waymo’s world-class team - especially now as we advance our production and commercialization plans,” shared Elisa de Martel. Waymo’s the leader in the autonomous driving tech industry, and I’m inspired by the opportunity to transform mobility by making it safer, more fun to get around, and accessible to all.”

Elisa joins Waymo at a very exciting growth time for us as we deploy the Waymo Driver in more cities over years to come, advancing our ride-hailing and trucking business units. Elisa’s leadership will be critical as we continue on our ambitious path ahead to transform mobility.
