After a year empty, Uber Hong Kong fills its GM seat with Estyn Chung

After leaving the position vacant for more than a year, Uber Hong Kong has appointed Estyn Chung as its general manager

Chung worked for UBS for more than a decade before founding video-powered job platform CANOPY in 2016. In his latest appointment, Chung's main goal will be to help drive growth for Uber Hong Kong's business.

Commenting on his appointment, Chung said, “Uber is transforming the way people move around cities and is creating a new meaning for people who look to ride-sharing to bring home extra income. As an avid user myself, I’m excited to be joining the team, and making convenient ride options as accessible as ever to the people of Hong Kong.”

Susan Anderson, regional general manager for Uber in Australia, New Zealand, and North Asia said Chung will also help ensure that Uber Hong Kong continues to offer a safe and reliable point-to-point transportation for the people in the city.

Chung's position had been unfilled since former general manager Kenneth She had left last year to pursue a career in Humansa, a New World Development healthcare brand founded in 2018. During this interim, Uber's head of Asia Pacific Amit Jain had been overseeing the business in Hong Kong but he himself left to join venture capital firm Sequoia Capital earlier this October.
