Chief Executive Officer

Modo The Car Co-op is a true British Columbia success story. Started in Vancouver's West End in 1997 with two cars and 16 members, Modo now shares over 400 vehicles among 15,000 members and business drivers in the Lower Mainland and Victoria. Modo operates on co-op principles and provides support to a variety of community initiatives. Working with individuals, municipalities, and developers, Modo strives to increase the livability of the communities in which it operates through innovative shared transportation solutions. Modo is sought-after by consumers for its convenience, high quality vehicles and attractive pricing.

Modo’s Board has embarked on an ambitious growth plan to continue to disrupt the vehicle ownership paradigm and to strengthen the company’s position as Vancouver and Victoria’s lead brand for sustainable transportation in a highly competitive marketplace. As such we are seeking a visionary, entrepreneurial and tech savvy Chief Executive Officer who will make Modo a household name across BC’s Lower Mainland and South Island communities – and help make Modo cars an integral part of every neighbourhood.

In addition to fulfilling this ambitious vision, the CEO is accountable for the overall leadership and day to day management of the organization, including Board reporting, financial management, marketing, member relations and external partnerships. Building, inspiring and coaching a collaborative team in a co-operative environment will be critical to the overall success of this position. As a business strategist and entrepreneurial leader, the new CEO will identify new partnerships and diverse opportunities to take Modo to the next stage of its evolution while maintaining the record of service excellence the company currently offers its members and business customers.

The ideal candidate is an entrepreneurial leader who embraces innovation, understands how and when to take risks and is not afraid to encourage unorthodox ideas to achieve a strategic vision. The ideal CEO is a genuine people-person who knows how to build great relationships, uncover new ideas and inspire people to excel as a team. The CEO is also someone with a social conscience who is passionate about sustainable transportation and community partnerships.

You may have built and sold your own company or worked in a senior leadership role in a business that leverages shared-use mobile technology. You are a consummate builder of brands and nurturer of a unique corporate culture with a desire to make a difference in the lives of the people and the communities where you live and work.

If you are skilled at growing organizations and would be motivated by a new challenge to help Modo shape transportation’s future, please send a copy of your CV to Shaun Carpenter and Shelina Esmail at
