In the newly created role, Garikipati will work closely with Flipkart co-founders on new and high-impact business projects, Flipkart said in a release. Garikipati will focus on driving innovative changes for these business projects, which are a mix of new, independent and existing businesses.

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.
