Fashinza, a global B2B manufacturing startup, has appointed a senior leader to drive its global and Indian expansion. Its new executive leader Rajesh Meena, Head of Operations, will play a critical role, as the company continues to see accelerated demand for its offerings.
After a recent round of funding from Accel Partners, Elevation Capital, Anand Ahuja, and actress Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, Fashinza is quickly expanding its team to meet the tremendous demand. The growth of the Fashinza team is part of a broader plan to help its clients not only in India but globally. The goal is to strengthen its position as a fashion and sustainable brand, delivering solutions for small and medium ethical factories, garment manufacturers, and fashion brands/ designers who are looking to attain success in the fashion and textile industry.
The addition of Meena marks the initiation of this expansion process for the company’s leadership team. He is an astute professional with 15 years of accomplished career in BlackBuck, Ola, TaxiForSure, and Spencer's Retail.
At Fashinza, he will oversee sales, mobility, operations, and supply chain. At the supply end, he’ll be chiefly responsible for onboarding factories, ensuring audit compliance, identifying the model factories, and achieving accurate supplier-brand matching basis the strengths and requirements of the respective suppliers and brands.
At the operational level, he will be responsible for ensuring 100 percent visibility in terms of TNA (Time-And-Action Plan), minimizing rejections of delivered goods, and ensuring on-time delivery. A major lacuna in the fashion industry is the missing trust factor between brands and suppliers and Fashinza’s goal is to fill this gap. He will be playing a pivotal role in achieving this target.

The company is looking for experienced professionals in sales, business strategy, and operations verticals for seamless service delivery to our clients, while by no means compensating for our ethics.
