The newly appointed Country Head of Pakistan, Feroz Jaleel, commented: “I am thrilled to lead Careem Pakistan through its next chapter of growth. Since entering Pakistan in 2016, Careem has helped to shape the local ride-hailing economy to make life simpler for people across the country. The opportunity to increase our impact in Pakistan is huge and I am excited to kick start my 100 Day Plan with a focus on reliability and safety, in support of our Customers and Captains.”
As a pioneer of the ride-hailing economy in Pakistan, Careem is committed to simplifying and improving the lives of its Customers and Captains. Providing employment opportunities to more than 800,000 Captains, Careem has invested up to $100 million in Pakistan since its inception.
Transforming into a Super App, Careem has further expanded its services from the mobility of people to adding mobility of things and money; including food/daily essential deliveries, peer-to-peer credit transfer, and mobile top-ups.
