Hour 1: Andy Bissonette of Michigan Humane Society and Mayor Kevin Hinkley of Wixom, MI
Andy Bissonette, Digital Marketing Manager for the Michigan Humane Society, shared some of the many resources that the Michigan Humane Society offers pet owners all across the state of Michigan. Everything from adoption to spaying and neutering are offered at extremely reasonable rates for pet owners.
Sherif Marakby, vice president of global vehicle systems for Uber, first revealed the plan to open a metro Detroit technology outpost in September, but the location was previously unknown. He said at the time that the Detroit area, like Pittsburgh, could also become a testing ground for Uber’s self-driving hailing service.
Uber released the following statement about the upcoming move to southwest Oakland county:
“We are excited to open our Wixom office this quarter, as this center will enable further collaboration with Tier Is and OEMs to make Self Driving Ubers a reality. Detroit shaped the history of transportation and we believe it has an important role to play in its future of this transformation. We have a strong presence in Detroit already and we know this new space will allow us to do more.”
