A former Aviva and British Airways executive has hired to run Uber’s UK division.
London’s financial paper City AM says Andrew Brem will be named as the company’s UK general manager, replacing replace Ash Kebriti, who is tapped to move to a new role at Uber, and will report to Jamie Heywood, the company’s general manager for Northern Europe.
News of the hire comes a matter of weeks after Uber secured a licence to continue operating in London for the next two and a half years.
“Uber is one of the most exciting technology companies in the world as it continues to change the way we move around our cities,” City AM quotes Brem as saying in a statement.
“The UK has led the way globally in driving forward Uber’s electrification efforts, as well as providing all UK drivers with worker protections such as holiday pay and a pension in what was an industry first.”
