Garikipati has over 25 years experience in building and leading global products and businesses. In his last job, as head of [24]7 Innovation Labs, Garikipati was responsible for overall strategy and development of all products.
 
Prior to that, he served as senior vice president at Vendio, which scaled to have more than 2.5 million online sellers and was eventually bought by Alibaba.
