Uber Eats Kenya has named Wangui Mbugua as General Manager for its Kenya business. Her appointment is set to drive the business on an even higher growth trajectory.
“I’m excited to take on this new role as I have seen the rapid growth of food delivery in Kenya and the growth that the business brings to the digital economy. The impact of convenience and on-demand commerce on the market is evident.
“Not only is Uber Eats creating unique work opportunities, but our operations have a positive knock-on effect for restaurants, merchants and delivery people,” Wangui said.
Wangui joined Uber in 2019 as Strategy and Planning Lead for Uber Eats Sub-Saharan Africa.
Prior to this, she worked at Koko Networks, an international technology company dedicated to bringing clean and affordable energy to low and middle-income households in Nairobi.
A legal graduate with an undergraduate degree in law and a Master’s degree in International Business and Commercial Law, she started her career as a legal intern for leading African law firm Bowmans and later moved to McKinsey and Co. as a management consultant.
