Zum, an alternative student transportation provider, announced the appointment of Lynn Miller, who joins the company as General Counsel. Miller will work with the Zum management team and the Board to provide strategic legal advice and set governance policies as Zum continues to expand nationally toward its mission of delivering safe, reliable, sustainable, and equitable student transportation.
Miller previously was Deputy General Counsel at Tesla, and, as head of its Litigation, Regulatory, and Privacy groups, successfully defended the company in lawsuits and regulatory challenges and helped design business strategies that advanced Tesla's goals while protecting it from legal risk.
Before that, she was at Apple for 14 years managing its litigation and regulatory enforcement actions worldwide. She started her career as a partner at Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP and most recently was General Counsel at Plus, an autonomous trucking company, according to a press release.
"We're excited to welcome Lynn to Zum as we continue to lead a national movement in reimagining student transportation," Zum CEO and founder Ritu Narayan said. "Having served as counsel at two of the world's most valuable technology companies, Lynn brings the depth of knowledge, impressive track record, and perspective we need to support Zum on our journey to modernize the nation's largest mass transit system."
Zum is available nationwide, with a growing number of school districts across the U.S. partnering with Zum, including San Francisco, Seattle, Spokane, Oakland and Nashville, and the nation's second-largest school district, Los Angeles Unified School District.
