China’s largest mobile-based transportation platform Didi Dache, has appointed Jean Liu (pictured) as its new president.
Liu joined the company as its COO in August last year, leaving her post as managing director of Goldman Sachs’ principle investment area in Asia. In the role of COO, she spearheaded Didi Dache’s new business, Didi Black, and managed the company’s PR and branding as well as their government relations and human resources.
“We welcome more world-class talents to join us as we continue to build a world-class enterprise. Jean Liu is the very person with the talent that we are looking for,” said Cheng Wei, the company’s founder, chairman and CEO, on her appointment.
“During Jean’s first half year in Didi, she completed Didi’s biggest round of funding of $700 million, and led Didi Black, PR and GR teams to a new level. Jean Liu is an honest and sincere person, who has quickly become a great member of Didi and is loved by everyone.
Lui added, “Thanks to all Didi fellows, especially the trust from Cheng Wei and his support during my first half year in Didi.”
“As China’s largest mobile-based transportation platform, we have the dream to transform the way people communicate and offer high quality, efficient and affordable options of commuting to people around the world. We will do even better in 2015 and we will never stop the pursuit for our dreams.”
