Uber has announced the appointment of Satinder Bindra as its first Director of Communications, India and South Asia.


As a key member of Uber’s regional leadership team, Bindra will be responsible for driving Uber’s reputation forward and delivering against the mission of providing reliable transportation everywhere, for everyone; encompassing internal and external communications, stakeholder relations and community outreach efforts.


Commenting on the appointment, Jill Hazelbaker, Senior Vice President of Policy and Communications, Uber said: “I am thrilled for Sat to join Uber and lead our Communications efforts across India and South Asia. Sat brings a truly exceptional collection of experiences encompassing more than two decades and spanning over 70 countries. He is a thought leader, a respected development advocate, humanitarian and campaigner; he is also an author, an award winning journalist, documentarian, and a talented brand ambassador. His appointment reinforces our commitment and continued investment to India, as an absolutely critical global market for Uber.”


Previously, Bindra was the Principal Director of External Relations at the Manila-based Asian Development Bank, the Communications Director for the United Nation’s Development Programme in New York City and the United Nations Environment Programme in Nairobi, Kenya.


Commenting on his appointment, Bindra said: “I’m honoured to work for Uber, a company that is reshaping technology, changing consumer behavior and promoting sustainability at an unprecedented scale. In India and South Asia, UBER has a formidable track record of creating economic opportunities, improving social mobility, reducing traffic congestion and improving air quality. I look forward to sharing its exciting story with 1.9 billion South Asians.’’


Given the way things have been panning out for the cab (and now food) aggregator here in India, we expect his hands full with much action. And a lot of it which may not be under his control.
