Ride-hailing app operator Grab Indonesia has appointed former National Police chief (ret.) Gen. Badrodin Haiti as a chief commissioner of the company with the main task of supervising the board of directors.

“I am glad to join Grab Indonesia, a company that has proven itself in improving people’s welfare and providing a solution to a local transportation problem,” Badrodin said in a statement on Monday.

He said he would use his experience as a police officer who had worked in many regions across the country to help the company expand its businesses.

Grab Indonesia executive director Ridzki Kamadibrata said Badrodin’s experience in dealing with various stakeholders in the government would be useful for the company to expand.

“Pak Badrodin has wide range of experience, especially with working with various stakeholders in the government,” Ridzki said, adding that he may help Grab Indonesia with various policies related to transportation and road safety.

Badrodin was appointed as the National Police chief in April 2015 and ended his term in July 2016. Previously, he was a National Police deputy chief. (bbn)
