Offshore product development firm Girnar Soft has recently appointed Zomato’s ex employee Umesh Hora as its CFO. Umesh will be a part of company’s senior management team and will be responsible for spearheading company’s financial strategies and planning. He will also be responsible for the development of financial and legal infrastructure to support company’s expansion trajectory. Umesh was previously working with restaurant search and discovery platform Zomato as its CFO.
Speaking on the appointment, Amit Jain, Co-Founder and CEO, Girnar Soft, commented, “We are excited to welcome Umesh onboard. Having an experienced professional like Umesh makes complete sense at this juncture. He brings with him a wealth of multi-dimensional experience across different industries.

We look forward to working with Umesh as we scale CarDekho to newer heights.”
Umesh is a Commerce Graduate and a rank-holding Chartered Accountant from ICAI. He has also worked with many leading Indian and global companies over the years. During early days of his work life, he was associated with PricewaterhouseCoopers as an Associate, and has also been associated with Analec Infotech, WNS Global Services and Datamonitor India.
Umesh added, “Girnar Soft has established its niche as one of the most innovative, value-driven solutions experts and growth incubators in the Indian start-up ecosystem. As such, I am honoured and thrilled to be a part of this highly successful and dynamic organisation, and will be looking to play an integral part in its success.”
Umesh’s last assignment was with Zomato as its CFO before joining Girnar Soft. He also delved into the entrepreneurial field by opening the Mind Cafe in Gurgaon.
Girnar Soft’s appointment of Umesh comes close on the heels of the recent appointment of ex-PricewaterhouseCoopers Associate Director, Shobhit Mathur as its Director- Strategy, signaling the company’s efforts to build a strong leadership team. By bringing industry experts onboard, Girnar Soft is looking to indulge the deep knowledge of their respective verticals into an integrated effort to drive its business goals ahead.
