Myntra named marketing chief Gunjan Soni the new head of Jabong, a rival it bought last July; co-founder Ashutosh Lawania has quit to start a new venture
Online fashion retailer Myntra on Thursday named marketing chief Gunjan Soni the new head of Jabong, a rival it bought last July, and said its co-founder Ashutosh Lawania has quit to start a new venture. The Flipkart-owned company is in the process reshuffling its top deck following the departure of several key executives in the past six months.
Lawania, Mukesh Bansal, who currently runs his own venture CureFit, and Vineet Saxena had co-founded Myntra in 2007, around the time when Sachin and Binny Bansal started Flipkart. Myntra also named long-time company executive Naresh Krishnaswamy head of sales, while human resources head and former Amazon executive Manpreet Ratia is to take over the supply chain side of the business.
Over the past six months, Myntra has witnessed some key top-level departures including those of chief technology officer Shamik Sharma, head of commerce Prasad Kompalli and head of fashion brands Abhishek Verma.
