In a world where technology is reshaping business models like never before and transforming customer experiences, Ola is years ahead in its thinking of building a thriving transportation focused ecosystem. It was Bhavish’s vision to disrupt mobility at the grass roots level that attracted me towards Ola. I look forward to executing on the company’s mission and working with the amazing team at Ola.”
