Leadership Team

Moovit executive team - 2019

Nir Erez
Co-Founder & CEO

Nir Erez sees the future of urban mobility and in it, data is the determinant.

Erez co-founded Moovit with Roy Bick and Yaron Evron in February 2012 with the goal
of simplifying urban mobility around the world. The company grew quickly with four
rounds of funding totaling $133 million

Erez is a serial entrepreneur with over 20 years of experience leading technology
startups. Prior to Moovit, Nir was also the founder and CEO of both ActionBase and
Optimal Plus. Nir is also co-owner and co-founder of Eyron Group which invests in
early-stage software companies. Erez graduated from the IDF computer academy
(Mamram) and holds a Bsc. degree in Physics.

In 1994 Erez graduated from Bar-Ilan University with a degree in Physics, which he
applies to business. “You must anticipate the reaction to every action,” Erez says. “In
business, every problem has a solution. It just takes the right team, time and resources.
It’s also a marathon, not a sprint.” Marathons are something Erez knows intimately as
an avid triathlete who completed multiple marathons and Ironman races in the last 15
years.
