Voyager Global Mobility announced its acquisition of Fast Track Mobility on Nov. 8, increasing the company’s for-hire-vehicle operational footprint in New York City. The transaction was arranged by EA Markets with preferred equity from Prudential Private Capital, the private capital arm of PGIM Inc., the $1.3 trillion global investment management business of Prudential Financial, Inc.

Eric Rothman, founder, CEO, and president of Fast Track will stay on with the company through the end of 2021 to help with the transition and will serve in an advisory capacity thereafter. In 2017, Rothman was appointed to serve on the ACRA board and its Mobility Taskforce.
