“I’ve long admired what [Rivian CEO] RJ Scaringe and his team have been able to accomplish in their fight for a more sustainable future, and I am greatly looking forward to contributing my support and experience in pursuit of that mission,” Callahan said in a LinkedIn post.

Following the announcement, Rivian’s stock was little changed at $18.93 a share and a $17 billion market cap.
