RIDE-sharing startup GrabTaxi said it has appointed former AirAsia senior executive Ridzki Kramadibrata (pic above) as the managing director for Indonesia.
He will lead the expansion of GrabTaxi Indonesia and oversee local programmes for all stakeholders, the company said in a statement.
Ridzki will provide strategic guidance and local business knowledge to drive growth in the republic, across the multiple services available on the GrabTaxi app, it added.
“2015 was a great year for us … we’ve been able to improve the transportation landscape in Indonesia by successfully launching GrabBike, GrabCar and GrabExpress to complement our taxi business,” said chief executive officer Anthony Tan.
“We believe Ridzki’s leadership will bring us to new heights and enable us to realise our mission to make transportation safe, dependable and accessible in this region,” he added.
With over 20 years of experience working for multinational companies, Ridzki led the operations of AirAsia Indonesia as chief operating officer, and was most recently the regional director in AirAsia Group, before joining GrabTaxi.
Prior to AirAsia, he spent the majority of his career in the telecommunications industry, including the role of executive vice president of marketing, product and CRM at Bakrie Telecom.
“I’m very excited about the opportunity to collaborate with a magnificent and dynamic team that has transformed the public transportation landscape in Indonesia,” said Ridzki.
“Meeting the transport needs of the Indonesian community by providing the safest rides and improving our drivers’ livelihoods will continue to be a key priority,” he added.
Ridzki graduated from State University of New York with an MBA degree, and graduated from Universitas Padjadjaran, Bandung – Indonesia with a bachelor degree in Management.
