Uber Technologies has announced its new chief executive, Peter Chou, as well as its newly-appointed chief innovation officer.
Chou will join the ride-hailing company on April 15.
Chun has spent the last six years at Uber, becoming its CEO in 2015 and taking over the company’s business in 2020.
Uber’s board had announced earlier this month that Chou would take over from Kevin Johnson, who had led Uber since 2015.
“Uber has a long history of building new business models and innovating our business in a dynamic, world-changing market,” the company said in a statement.
“Peter has an unparalleled track record of success, bringing decades of experience to Uber, including leading the company to new heights as chief technology officer, and managing the company through a number of challenging periods.”
“Peter has led Uber to new highs in both the number of people and the number rides taken.
And he’s been at Uber for 20 years.
We look forward to working together in his new role,” the statement continued.
Uber has been struggling to stay relevant in the world of ride-sharing, as the company continues to struggle with regulators around the world.
The company has struggled with its ability to deliver quality rides, and has had to deal with its employees’ dissatisfaction with the company.
Chu is known for being a passionate fan of Uber and for his willingness to work hard to improve the company, particularly for the riders and drivers.
Chuo has been one of the most outspoken Uber critics in the company since he joined the company in late 2017.
He has previously been critical of the company for not giving riders more choice when it comes to their service.
“Our team is not going to be perfect.
But we’re not going anywhere,” he told the Financial Times in September.
“We’ve built the company with riders in mind.
We know how to connect with riders, and we’re working to make Uber the best, most convenient and most convenient ride-service out there.”
Chou, who previously served as president and CEO of the global taxi company Didi Chuxing, has a background in transportation.
He was previously the executive vice president and general manager of a transportation network company called RideCX, which operates in North America, Europe and Asia.
