Originally hailing from Australia, Kieran has years of working with disruptive digital business models across the world.
On a snowy Paris evening in 2008, Travis Kalanick and Garrett Camp had trouble hailing a cab. So they came up with a simple idea—tap a button, get a ride. Since then Uber is evolving the way the world moves. By seamlessly connecting riders to drivers through their apps. From the first ride in 2010 to launches in hundreds of cities today, Uber’s rapidly expanding global presence continues to bring people and their cities closer.
