Ankit Nagori is Flipkart's chief business officer
Jun '15
E-commerce major Flipkart has promoted marketplace operations head Ankit Nagori to the newly created role of chief business officer, according to media reports.

Nagori’s appointment came as the comany seeks to accelerate its shift to a marketplace model and triple the number of third-party sellers on its platform by December.

Nagori’s earlier role was senior vice-president, marketplace. He will now oversee the marketplace business as well as the company’s retail and brand alliance function, which has ceased to exist on a separate basis. He will continue to report to Mukesh Bansal, head of Flipkart’s e-commerce platform.

“My key priorities this year are to drive the adoption of mobile app shopping, improve customer experience and have 100,000 sellers on the platform (from 30,000 currently),” Nagori said. “We want to make buying much easier for customers by enabling wider product selection, offering better deals and several payment options such as EMIs across products. I will also be working closely with the product and technology teams to enable SMEs (small and medium enterprises) to increase sales and sell more intelligently on our platform.”

Nagori said the company is also working on ways to encourage direct interaction on the mobile between shoppers and its third-party sellers.

In his new role, Nagori will be responsible for striking partnerships with mobile phone makers, fashion retailers and other companies. Michael Adnani, vice-president, retail and head of brand alliances, will report to Nagori.

“At 29, Ankit will be among the youngest professionals at a senior position in a company of Flipkart’s scale,” human resources head Mekin Maheshwari said. (SH)
