AutoGravity, a fintech provider modernizing the way consumers buy and finance automobiles, announced on Tuesday it has appointed Alex Mallmann as President and Chief Executive Officer, and Jason Bonifay as Chief Technology Officer. According to AutoGravity, the announcement comes as the company hits a new milestone, reaching more than two million users in less than two years since its initial product launch. Mallmann was also named a new board member as well. The news of Mallmann’s appointment comes just after Andy Hinrichs departed from the CEO position of AutoGravity in May.
Speaking about Mallmann’s appointment, Benedikt Schell, Chief Experience Officer and Member of the Board of Management at Daimler Financial Services AG and Chairman of the Board of Directors at AutoGravity, stated:
“Alex has the unique ability to translate vision and strategy into world-class execution, which enables a compelling customer experience.

“I’m extremely excited to join the AutoGravity team and further revolutionize the digital car buying experience for customers. This company is full of amazingly talented people, market-leading technology and unmatched momentum. With our focus on constantly exceeding the expectations of consumers, dealers and lenders, AutoGravity will become the digital standard for car buying and financing.”
Bonifay joined the AutoGravity leadership team in May of this year, serving as Vice President of Engineering. He has notably developed a clear technology vision and expanded the capabilities of the engineering team. Previously, Bonifay served as VP of Development for Product and Engineering at CDK Global. Prior to joining AutoGravity, he served as Chief Technology Officer at Propero Software, where he led the overall direction for technology, product development, marketing and business strategy.

“AutoGravity has established a reputation as a leading innovator in the automotive industry. The opportunity to provide technical leadership and drive innovative solutions during this era of rapid growth is an exciting and welcome challenge for me. I look forward to contributing to AutoGravity’s mission to revolutionize the digital car-buying experience.”
