Flipkart's head of fashion Rishi Vasudev quits

Earlier this year, Vasudev was promoted to senior vice president at Flipkart and was given the additional role of managing Myntra following Narayanan's departure.

Rishi Vasudev, a former CEO of Calvin Klein in India, joined Flipkart as the head of fashion in 2014 and has become one of the most important executives in the management team headed by Kalyan Krishnamurthy post last year Walmart $16 billion acquisition of Flipkart.
NEW DELHI/BENGALURU: Rishi Vasudev, group head of fashion at Flipkart and head of Myntra, is leaving the country’s largest ecommerce group after a five-year stint, two people privy to the development said.

Flipkart confirmed Vasudev’s decision “to leave Flipkart to pursue opportunities outside the company” and said he will be there with the group until March 2020. As the company looks to identify a new leader for the business. “Amar Nagaram, head - Myntra Jabong, and Dev Iyer, head - Flipkart Fashion, will work with Rishi and Kalyan (Flipkart CEO Kalyan Krishnamurthy) to manage the transition,” a Flipkart spokesperson said in an email response.

It is unclear where Vasudev is headed to. He is the third top executive to quit Flipkart in the last one year, after former CFO Dipanjan Basu and former Myntra CEO Ananth Narayanan. A former CEO of Calvin Klein in India, Vasudev joined Flipkart as the head of fashion in 2014 and has become one of the most important executives in the management team headed by Kalyan Krishnamurthy post the Bengaluru ecommerce group’s acquisition last year by Walmart $16 billion.
