Marsya Nabila - 20 November 2020
Yesterday (18/11), Gojek announced the reshuffle of the C-level management structure to strengthen the company's two main portfolios, namely services under Gojek and financial which will be effective as of January 2020.
Co-CEO Gojek will share the tasks. Kevin Aluwi will lead the Gojek service, while Andre Soelistyo will lead the digital and financial payment line. They both remain as Co-CEOs of Gojek Group. Changes only occur at the operational level of the company, so they do not have an impact on the organizational structure as a group.
"We will continue our role as Co-CEO of the Gojek Group, but each of us will have a more specific scope and responsibilities going forward," said Kevin and Andre in an official statement.
Andre will lead three business units, digital payments (Gopay), financial services such as PayLater, and B2B and merchant solutions.
Both of them explained that in the development of two large business portfolios under the Gojek Group, namely services under the Gojek brand and digital & financial payment services, they have grown bigger. Each portfolio requires different skills and focus.
The management focus on strengthening these two portfolios was carried out due to the stronger corporate fundamentals this year. Total GTV on the Gojek group platform reached $12 billion, increased by 10% from the previous year. Meanwhile, GTV Gopay grew to exceed the total transaction value in the pre-pandemic period.
"Therefore, we must optimize our team to maximize the growth of each of these big businesses. [..] Now is the right time to look back at our business and ensure that Gojek can run optimally, therefore, it will be even more successful in the future. "
Another line shifting of management is that Hans Patuwo will head the payments business, previously he served as COO of Gojek for nearly three years. Moreover, Ryu Suliawan will lead the B2B and merchant solutions. He previously held the position of Head of Merchants Gojek and also Founder of Midtrans, a payment gateway company that was acquired by Gojek in 2017.
Andre, Hans, and Ryu will develop payment lines next year, Gojek's current financial business is led by Aldi Haryopratomo as CEO of Gopay who has served for three years. Aldi will step down next year, it was not clear about his next venture.
“Under Aldi's leadership, Gopay has grown rapidly and has become an important part of the way Indonesians transact. Gojek will always be grateful for Aldi's services and contributions [..] Aldi will continue to be a friend and advisor who is trusted and respected by everyone in the Gojek Group," Andre added.
Aldi also said, “I am very grateful to be able to be a part of the development of Gopay and with the team that has helped build the company into what it is today. [..] I am confident that the company will continue to provide access to financial services for the people who need it most.”
