Hyperloop One CTO BamBrogan Leaves Company
Brogan BamBrogan, co-founder and CTO of high flying, Los Angeles transportation startup Hyperloop One, has apparently left the company, in what looks to be a major shakeout at the company. Josh Giegel, the senior Vice President of Engineering at Hyperloop One, is taking over the CTO role. A report from Recode says the move is related the the departure and removal of Chief Legal Officer Afshin Pishevar, who is the brother of co-founder and chairman Shervin Pishevar. Hyperloop One is one of the companies developing technology to bring Elon Musk's concept of the "Hyperloop" transportation system to life, essentially sending people, and cargo, at high speed between cities through giant pneumatic tubes.
