Donald Trump's transition team is reportedly looking at the chief operating officer of ride-share company Lyft as a possible pick for Secretary of Transportation.
Rex Tibbens, COO of Lyft and former vice president at Amazon (AMZN) , is being considered to lead the Transportation Department under Trump, according to Dan Primack, formerly of Fortune. The report comes as Trump's transition team meets in New York on Friday to discuss plans for his upcoming presidential administration and buzz surges surrounding who will land top positions.
A spokesperson for Lyft denied Tibbens would desire such a position. "Rex Tibbens would be a valuable asset to any organization, but he is not interested in pursuing a role outside of Lyft," said Lyft spokesman Adrian Durbin.
The Trump campaign did not respond to request for comment.
A number of notable names in the business world have been floated as potential contenders for spots in Trump's cabinets since the real estate magnate's stunning victory Tuesday.
CNBC reported on Thursday that JPMorgan (JPM) CEO Jamie Dimon was being considered as Treasury Secretary, though the executive in the past has said he would not be interested. Billionaire investor Carl Icahn has also ruled out the position despite Trump's comments he might extend an offer. Trump campaign finance chair and Goldman Sachs (GS) banker Steven Mnuchin appears most likely to wind up with the spot.
Harold Hamm, Continental Resources (CLR) CEO, has been mentioned as a contender for Energy Secretary. Billionaire investor Wilbur Ross and former Nucor (NUE) CEO Dan DiMicco, both of whom advised Trump's presidential campaign, are said to be potential fits for Secretary of Commerce.
