Now, one year later, I begin the next leg of my trip with Uber!
Following a search that included internal and external candidates, I’m superpumped to begin my new role as Head of Communications for Southeast Asia. In this role, I will be responsible for the Communications teams based out of Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam and the Philippines.
I am thrilled to grow my career in one of the most exciting companies on the planet! Even with everything that has recently happened – the truth is, we’ve only just begun. As a company, we are making definitive progress as we continue to focus on profitability. In Southeast Asia, there is so much more potential to realise even when you consider our transport and UberEATS businesses alone!
We will focus on growing Uber as a sustainable business in the region: serving riders and consumers; driver-, delivery-, and restaurant-partners; as well as other key stakeholders – by helping Southeast Asia’s cities unlock growth and mobility with Uber’s smart innovation.
Are we there yet? Do we have everything figured out?
Like I said, we’ve only just begun.
Some of the most enduring and respected companies of our time have gone through their own version of a ‘redemption journey’ – and it is a privilege to play a role in this chapter of Uber’s story.
Here’s to the exciting ride ahead!
