Cameron Poetzscher Bio

Vice President of Corporate Development at Uber since 2014, Cameron Poetzscher’s experience with Asia-Pacific markets and M&A has been instrumental in the company’s expansion in Asia.

Cameron Poetzscher leads a team of executives working towards enhancing strategic partnerships and operations in Uber’s core and emerging markets. With over a decade of experience in some of the world’s toughest markets, he is particularly well-known for his analytical thought leadership, leadership style, strategic alliances, and creative approach to intricate business challenges.

Poetzscher is an expert in pre-IPO startup business operations, and has worked with several Fortune 50 companies, applying his deep academic knowledge of finance in the real world.

A graduate of the University of Queensland, he earned his MBA from Harvard Business School, where he graduated with distinction. He went on to stay at Harvard for an extra year, working as a Research fellow for Professor Peter Tufano on the school's Finance faculty - focusing his research on credit derivatives, hedging and options, as well as assisting with teaching and course development.

Having started his career with Booz Allen in Sydney, specializing in operations and growth strategies for companies in the Asia- Pacific market, Cameron Poetzscher joined Goldman Sachs in 1996, as an investment banker.

Working in New York, San Francisco and Asia, he was appointed as Managing Director of the Technology/Media/Telecom Group, promoted to the role of COO of M&A, Asia-Pacific ex-Japan, and subsequently became the MD of the company's South East Asia M&A Group.

Poetzscher applied his strengths and skillset to some of Goldman Sachs' biggest lead-managed deals - including the $11.4 billion sale of Fraser & Neave to TCC, the $4.7 billion sale of Fraser & Neave’s Asia Pacific Breweries stake to Heineken, as well as the $7.5 billion acquisition of Pixar by global entertainment giant Disney.
