Indonesian ride-hailing and delivery service company Gojek has named Sumit Rathor as the new GM of its Vietnam operations.
Rathor succeeds Tuan Duc Phung, former GM of Gojek Vietnam since 2020, who has decided to pursue other professional challenges outside the company, according to a Gojek statement.
With more than 20 years of experience in strategic planning, operations and finance, Rathor joined Gojek in 2019 as a regional manager for Indonesia, in charge of the Central and East Java areas.
“Vietnam is an important market for Gojek, and we expect that our energy and acumen, along with our market experience, inherited from our previous triumphs, will enable us to maximise the market’s potential,” said Rathor.
After entering Vietnam in 2018 under the name GoViet, Gojek Vietnam rebranded in 2020 in order to attract more customers and grow the business. The Indonesian company provides services such as transportation, food delivery, and logistics and has offices in Vietnam, Thailand, Singapore, and Indonesia.
According to local sources, this is Gojek Vietnam’s third CEO change since its establishment.
Last month, Grab Vietnam also appointed former MD at Grab Thailand, Alejandro Osorio, as MD at Grab Vietnam, supervising overall company operations and the development of the Vietnam business.
