I’m delighted to announce Pradeep Parameswaran will succeed me as the President of Uber India and South Asia, effective immediately.

As a key member of Uber’s regional leadership team, Pradeep will be responsible for leading the Rides operation to new heights as the preferred mobility platform for riders and drivers across India and South Asia.

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. His leadership around safety initiatives and our driver community engagement has resulted in many firsts for Uber in India, and globally, including launching India’s first ridesharing insurance program.

Commenting on his appointment, Pradeep said: “Uber is a once-in-a-generation movement. India is a critical global market that faces tough and exciting mobility challenges. With two asthmatic children who are growing up in Gurgaon, I am privileged to have the chance to shape a better future for our next generation – one with lesser pollution, lower congestion, more space for parks and lesser for parking!”

With over two decades of experience across the technology, media and telecommunications sectors, I’m excited to see how he will shape the next chapter of Uber’s success story in his new role.
