BHUBANESWAR: Uber Technologies Inc has elevated former Mckinsey and Co. Inc. executive Pradeep Parameswaran as president of its India and South Asia operations as it looks at doubling down investments in India mainly into people, products and strategic partnerships in the country.

Parameswaran takes over the role from Amit Jain, who has been elevated to the role of head of Asia Pacific region last month. Jain will be heading business operations in countries such as North Asia, Australia and New Zealand, while Parameswaran will be heading countries including India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.

“Over the last year and a half, Pradeep has been instrumental in our growth, cementing the region as a critical contributor to our global vision. I’m delighted to confirm that Pradeep Parameswaran will be taking over as President, Uber India and South Asia for our rides operations, effective immediately,” said Amit Jain, head of Asia Pacific, Uber (Rides).

He added that Parameswaran leadership around safety initiatives and Uber’s driver community engagement has resulted in many firsts for Uber in India, and globally, including launching India’s first ride-sharing insurance programme.

Pradeep joined Uber in January 2017 and was leading operations in India and South Asia. “After twenty years building businesses and leading through change across Asia and the US, I am excited to shape how the region moves over the next twenty,” Parameswaran said.
