Vivek Sunder, COO at Swiggy resigns

Swiggy’s COO Vivek Sunder, the company’s chief Operating Officer has resigned from the food delivery platform

After completing three long years at the Bengaluru-based company, Sunder will be leaving the company by October-end as per an internal mail shared by Co-Founder Sriharsha Majety to the employees.

With Sunder’s exit, Majety will take over and directly oversee the marketplace business with immediate effect.

Majety also praised Sunder for playing a very significant role in the growth story of Swiggy, preferably the food delivery business that grew during his tenure.

“On the organizational side, Vivek has played a key role in infusing large organization thinking in the company with a constant focus on scalability. He has also played a pivotal role in laying the seeds of practising deep consumer empathy in the way we look at our products and offerings, and leveraging it to come up with simple moves that can drive big gains in consumer perception as opposed to technically complex solutions,” added Majety in his letter sent ot the employees by pointing that Vivek will be missed for his zeal, for always pushing the boundary on consumer thinking and the functional mastery he brought to the table.

Sunder has over 20 years of experience in fmcg categogy, and has worked as Managing Director at P&G’s East Africa operations, before joining Swiggy.

Majety also mentioned that Sunder played a pivotal role in expanding the geographical footprint of the marketplace business, taking Swiggy beyond 500 cities and also played a key role in holding the fort for Swiggy’s on-ground operations during the covid-lockdown.

A graduate from Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Calcutta, he has played a keyrole in Swiggy’s growth since 2018.

In May 2020, Swiggy’s co-founder and CTO Rahul Jaimini resigned from the food delivery platform to join Pesto Tech, a career accelerator startup, as co-founder.

He still continues to be a shareholder and board member of Swiggy.

In June 2021, the Bengaluru-based food delivery has partnered with ANRA Technologies to experiment the drone deliveries.
