Flipkart veteran Anil Goteti resigns as senior vice presidentBengaluru: Flipkart veteran Anil Goteti has resigned, the ecommerce firm said in an email to employees on Wednesday. ET has seen a copy of the email.

Goteti will remain with the company till November and continue as an advisor after his tenure ends. He reports to Flipkart Group CEO Kalyan Krishnamurthy.

Goteti started his career in 2012 as a director of the books and eBooks segment. He currently leads customer growth and monetization as senior vice president.

Goteti has led the Bengaluru-based homegrown e-tailer’s mobiles category, furniture business as well as the Flipkart 2Gud marketplace for refurbished goods.

In his most recent role, he was responsible for acquiring new customers, growing the transacting base, driving its loyalty program and advertisements.

“He (Goteti) has played a pivotal role in turning around and scaling up the marketplace business and helped deliver consistent growth… also played a key role in our fundraising efforts during his marketplace role,” Krishnamurthy told employees in the email.

“With Anil’s move, we will be transitioning his responsibilities to Vikas Gupta and Prakash Sikaria,” he said.

Gupta will continue to lead Marketing, Research & Insights, Customer Programs and Big Billion Day for the Walmart-owned company.

Sikaria will take on the leadership of the Loyalty and Supercoins programs, in addition to driving Ads and Video.

“These changes will come into effect immediately, and Vikas and Prakash will both report to me in their new roles,” Krishnamurthy said.

In July, Walmart led a $1.2 billion investment in Flipkart’s commerce business, valuing it at $24.9 billion.

In May, Flipkart elevated five executives — Manish Kumar, Anand Laxminarayan, Ranjeet D, Ravish Kumar Sinha and Ravi Iyer – to senior vice presidents.

There are around 14 SVPs in Flipkart who report directly to Krishnamurthy.

In December, Flipkart’s head of fashion and SVP Rishi Vasudev quit to join Lifestyle International as CEO.

A few months back, Flipkart Group CFO Emily McNeal, who came on board as part of Walmart’s acquisition of the Indian e-commerce firm, also left.
