Uber has appointed Mohammad Bakr Gazzaz as the new general manager for Saudi Arabia.

Tasked with leading the next phase of growth for Uber’s ride-sharing business across the kingdom, Gazzaz joins Uber with over 14 years of experience in Saudi Arabia.

Based in Riyadh and overseeing operations across the kingdom, Gazzaz’s role will focus on closely aligning Uber’s efforts with Saudi Vision 2030 and helping fuel economic growth in the kingdom by increasing mobility for individuals. The new GM will also drive operational excellence and build high-performing teams and local partnerships. 

Commenting on his new appointment, Gazzaz said: “I am honoured to be a part of Uber’s next chapter of growth at such a transformational time for the kingdom. Through a number of local initiatives and partnerships such as ‘Masaruky’, Uber is proud to help support its local communities and provide accessible and affordable transport options to millions of Saudis. I look forward to leading our talented team to take our support for Saudi Vision 2030 to new heights.”

Abdellatif Waked, general manager of Uber Middle East & North Africa, commented: “With extensive experience leading teams in high-growth companies, we are extremely excited that Mohamed Gazzaz is taking over the steering wheel at one of Uber’s most crucial and fastest-growing markets within the Middle East and North Africa region. We are confident that he will help unlock further urban mobility and growth potential across the kingdom.”

Prior to joining Uber, Gazzaz was vice president of Business Development and the head of Marketing and Corporate Communications at NCB Capital.

Demonstrating Uber’s dedication to the kingdom, earlier this month Uber announced its strategic partnership with Takamol Holding. Uber’s largest subsidised transport program globally, the partnership aims to enable working women in Saudi Arabia overcome transportation challenges to and from the workplace by providing affordable, subsidised transportation solutions. Last month, Uber also launched a global first and exclusive feature for Saudi Arabia in the form of “Women Preferred View”, providing women drivers with a choice in selecting a preference to be connected to women riders. – TradeArabia News Service
