Jewelry brand BlueStone has elevated Sudeep Nagar, the chief operating officer as its co-founder. Nagar will be joining Gaurav Singh Kushwaha, BlueStone’s CEO as the omnichannel brand’s second co-founder.
An alumnus of IIM Ahmedabad, Sudeep joined BlueStone in December 2012, with extensive experience in software and luxury real estate and has been instrumental in making BlueStone a vertically and digitally integrated organization.
Initiatives under his leadership have strongly impacted the business - curtailing critical wastage, improving speed to delivery, and maintaining lean operations overall. According to the company, with his elevation to co-founder, Sudeep will continue to leverage the brand's proprietary technology ecosystem to ensure consumers have a seamless experience across the brand's various touchpoints like the D2C website, app, and stores, from design to delivery.
“It is no coincidence that Sudeep's elevation to co-founder comes just as he marks a decade of building BlueStone. In these ten years, his initiatives have impacted all possible functions like marketing, retail, sales, logistics, accounts and more. I can't think of a better person to share the mantle of co-founder,” commented Gaurav Singh Kushwaha, Co-Founder and CEO, Bluestone.
BlueStone was founded in Bangalore in 2011 and claims to have over 140 retail stores across 38 Indian cities. The company asserted that it has crafted over 8,700 contemporary creations across more than 100 collections.
