Travel search site Wego today announced the appointment of Ruwie S. Rahardjo as General Manager of Wego Indonesia, following the promotion of former GM Graham Hills to Chief Product Officer.

Hills will relocate to Singapore to work at the company’s global headquarters.

“Indonesia’s online landscape is still rapidly evolving and I’m eager to continue to grow the valuable local business relationships that have been established and expand Wego’s presence in this country,” she added.

Hills will support Rahardjo in terms of continuing valuable relationships established during his tenure, and will return to Jakarta to personally introduce her to key partners and assist in the transition.

In his new position as Chief Product Officer, he will use his local knowledge and experience in developing an individual market to lead development team and set global product strategy.

“It’s an incredibly exciting time to be working with Wego,” said Hills of his appointment.

“While I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time in Jakarta building Wego’s business in Indonesia, I’m just as excited to be heading up our extremely talented development team and taking Wego to the next level.”
