Bengaluru: Walmart-owned Flipkart’s fashion subsidiary, Myntra, has lost Sharath Bulusu, a senior vice-president. This comes after Ambarish Kenghe, who was the Myntra CPO, left last year to join Google.
Bulusu, a former Google executive and chief product officer of London-based Housetrip, had joined Myntra in 2016, when the company had hired several senior executives in multiple departments. Bulusu was an important part of Myntra’s product team.
This comes at the time when Walmart’s International CEO and President, Judith Mckenna is in India to take stock of Flipkart group enterprises. Bulusu’s resignation from Myntra adds him to the list of various senior executives who have moved on from the company in the last few months, including Ananth Narayanan, former CEO.
After the exit of Binny Bansal, co-founder of Flipkart, in November last year, Myntra-Jabong came under Flipkart group CEO, Kalyan Krishnamurthy. Amar Nagaram, who currently heads Myntra-Jabong, reports to Rishi Vasudev, Fashion Head of Flipkart group.
Myntra is now searching for stability with fresh leadership in place and looking to maintain its position in the online fashion niche. With Flipkart Fashion, Jabong and Myntra, the group is currently dominating the online fashion business in the country.
