MANILA – International ridesharing and delivery service company Grab on Wednesday announced that Brian Cu, president for Grab Philippines (Grab PH), will leave the company next month.

Singapore-based Russell Cohen, group managing director- operations for Grab, said Cu is set to step down from his position on August 14.

“He has decided to move on to focus on other business interests as an entrepreneur in the startup scene, and we wish him the very best,” Cohen said.

In the next few weeks, he said the company will focus on the transition — with Grab PH head of transport and shared services Ronald Roda to continue as head of country operations.

“In the next few weeks, Brian, together with the leadership of Grab Philippines, will be focusing on a thorough and seamless transition to ensure consistency and continuity of Grab’s goals and operations in the country,” Cohen said.

He noted that Nicka Hosaka will remain as the spokesperson for Grab PH.

For his contributions to the company, he thanked Cu for leading Grab PH from being a “fledgling startup” seven years ago to the country’s most popular ride-sharing and delivery service app today.

“We send our heartfelt thanks to Brian for managing the Grab Philippines business for the past few years, where he’s grown the business from a fledgling startup to where it is today,” Cohen said. (PNA)
