The organisation will also have a Group Strategy function and mergers and acquisitions. Binny Bansal will be responsible for allocating capital across the group companies as well as for CEO selection and compensation.

The statement also added that Nitin Seth, the current chief administrative officer, will become the COO of Flipkart. He will be responsible for Ekart and customer experience along with his existing role of leading HR, corporate functions and strategy to execution capabilities for Flipkart.

Head of supply chain Saikiran will assist Binny Bansal. The company is also in the process of hiring Group CFO and General Counsel.

Only a year ago, the e-commerce company had undergone restructuring and Binny Bansal was appointed as the CEO. He had replaced Sachin Bansal, who was offered the position of executive chairman. (KD)
