Indonesia’s Gojek reorganises management structure to spur growth

JAKARTA (CNA) – Indonesian ride-hailing company Gojek will reorganise its management team into two separate arms, the company said on Friday.

From January 1 Gojek group CEO Andre Soelistyo will take charge of the company’s digital payments and financial services arm while co-chief executive Kevin Aluwi will focus on its ride-hailing and delivery side.

“What has become clear is that the two elements of our company have become increasingly distinct, with each requiring different expertise and focus,” the co-CEOs said in a joint statement.

Under the new structure, the payments group will be further divided into three new units: payments, business solutions and financial services.

CEO of Gojek’s digital payments arm, GoPay, Aldi Haryopratomowill step down from his role. Hans Patuwo, a former partner at consultancy firm McKinsey, will head the payments division while Gojek’s Head of Merchants Ryu Suliawan will head up the business solutions division in addition to his existing role.

The shake-up comes a week after Gojek announced that it had achieved USD12 billion in transactions this year.

The company said in June that it would lay off nine per cent of its employees and close its lifestyle services arm, GoLife, because of the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
