Kaptyn has the unique challenge of blending two very different groups of people. On one side of the business are veterans of the taxi and vehicle safety industries, and on the other are young, aggressive executives from the tech and media industries. On top of that, the company splits its employees between an office in Las Vegas and an office in New York. With a foot firmly planted in each group, Andrew Meyers works to marry the two. In fact, the unique blend of employees allows Kaptyn to execute its mission, he says: “It’s a powerful combination. We operate as a nimble startup, but have deep industry contacts and knowledge.” He says that at the end of the day, each member of the team has respect for others’ opinions, and that allows the company’s culture to thrive.
