Saudi Arabian delivery aggregator HungerStation has appointed former Uber Eats general manager Assad Numan as its new CEO.
Numan replaces former CEO Yousif Abdulaziz, who HungerStation thanked in a statement on LinkedIn for his “exceptional leadership”.
In its statement, HungerStation said that it has “undergone a challenging operation and structural transition period. The challenges the company endured caused the company’s leadership to make substantial positive changes which were implemented at all levels, which results in a strong performance of the company, and which contributed to achieving many successes and continued growth and development.”
Having been appointed to lead the now defunct Uber Eats expansion into Saudi Arabia less than a year ago, Numan now find himself with the same task at market leader Hunger Station.
Prior to working for Uber Eats, Numan has heled several management roles, including country head of marketing at Samsung Electronics, vice president of marketing at Gulf International Bank, and GCC brand manager at Procter & Gamble.
