Cyber security remains top priority for Gett as its ground transportation platform attracts ever-larger global accounts from Fortune 500 companies.
LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM – Gett – the ground transportation management (GTM) platform for business travel – has confirmed the appointment of Runli Guo as Chief Information Security Officer (CISO).
Runli is based in London and reports to Chief Information Officer (CIO) Dina Dembo-Orgil within the Technology and Innovation Function at Gett.
Currently around one quarter of Fortune 500 companies use Gett’s ground transportation management (GTM) platform and as this figure increases – but the antiquated ground transport sector doesn’t keep up – the company is placing ever-greater priority on cyber security as part of its commitment to providing customers with the best.
As such, Runli is now evolving the cyber resilience strategy of the business as it grows rapidly in a ripe-for-disruption analog corporate GTM market – estimated to be worth more than $100 billion a year.
Prior to joining Gett, Runli was the Global Head of Digital Cybersecurity Initiatives at Marsh McLennan, a global professional services firm.
Runli has more than 15 years of experience in global companies leveraging technologies such as big data analytics and artificial intelligence to build cyber security functions from the ground up.
In addition to her bachelor’s degree in computer science, Runli holds a PhD in artificial intelligence and is also a keen promoter for Women-in-Cyber and Women-in-Tech agendas.
Runli Guo, Chief Information Security Officer at Gett, comments: “This has been a really exciting time to join a market leader like Gett. Such a fast-evolving business brings with it many important cyber security demands where we can make a big difference to the company’s 2,000 ground transportation providers and Fortune 500 clients.”
Dave Waiser, Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder of Gett, comments: “Runli’s experience is invaluable as we build our cloud-based software to aggregate ground transportation providers – such as corporate fleets, ride-hailing services, taxis and limousines – onto one single platform. As we enter new markets and disrupt the highly inefficient ground transportation management (GTM) market globally, we are working with ever-larger global corporations that require us to lead the way in cyber security as part of our obsession with giving customers the best.”
