AUDL Owner Rob Lloyd, recently President at Cisco Systems, was announced as CEO of new startup technology company Hyperloop this week. Hyperloop (Wikipedia article) is a conceptual high speed transportation system originally envisioned by Tesla Motors and SpaceX founder Elon Musk. Lloyd will be among 50 full time employees already employed by the new company, which is based in the downtown LA Arts District in Southern California.

Lloyd: “The Hyperloop vision is compelling and disruptive. Developing the most transformative new mode of transportation that the world has seen in decades will have a profound impact on people, on economies and on how we all live in the future. It doesn’t get any better than that. … Hyperloop just feels like the perfect fit for me personally. My four sons all think this is so cool that I am joining Hyperloop and admire me for taking on such a big, bold challenge. There are so many parallels to the lessons I learned from my time at Cisco that are applicable to what we will be accomplishing together at Hyperloop.”
