We are thrilled to share that Xevo has been nominated for the 2020 GeekWire Awards. The GeekWire community selected Xevo as a finalist for the “Deal of the Year: IPOs & Acquisitions” category for our acquisition by Lear. The acquisition has introduced many exciting opportunities for Xevo and has further established Lear as a global leader in automotive technology. The category winners will be selected by community votes.
Xevo was acquired by Lear Corporation in April 2019. Lear is a global automotive technology leader in seating and e-systems headquartered in Southfield, Michigan. The acquisition expedited the global expansion of Xevo’s in-vehicle data monetization and connected car platform and has expanded Lear’s connectivity offerings with a leading-edge technology platform. With the acquisition of Xevo, Lear advanced its leadership position in the global trends reshaping the automotive industry.
