Former MD at Grab Thailand, Alejandro Osorio, has taken on a new role as MD at Grab Vietnam, overseeing overall business operations and the development of the Vietnam business. 

Osorio has served at the Southeast Asian super-app rideshare and delivery services for five years. He was appointed as MD of Grab Thailand in 2020. Before Grab, he held several roles at Brightstar Corp Hong Kong and SoftBank. Earlier this month, the company announced executive director Worachat Luxkanalode will take over the role of MD at Grab Thailand. 

“Alejandro’s experience in building up business strategy on a regional scale and developing high-performing local teams makes him the right leader for the next phase of growth for Grab in Vietnam,” said Russel Cohen, group operations director at Grab.

“His strong track record in driving Grab Thailand to emerge even stronger post the Covid-19 pandemic will enable him to truly understand the strategy and execution needed to extend Grab’s leadership positions across all on-demand segments in Vietnam, while simultaneously giving back to the local communities.”

The appointment came after Grab Vietnam’s former MD, Nguyen Thai Hai Van, departed the company earlier this year to pursue “a new career opportunity”.

Last month, the company said it expected revenue for this year between US$1.32 billion and $1.35 billion for the full year.
