New Delhi, Sept 14: Food delivery platform Zomato’s Co-Founder and Head of supply Gaurav Gupta has quit.
“I am taking a new turn in my life and will be starting a new chapter, taking a lot from this defining chapter of my life — the last six years at Zomato,” said Gupta in an email to employees earlier on Tuesday.
“We have a great team now to take Zomato forward and it is time for me to take an alternate path in my journey. I am very emotional as I write this and don’t think any words can do justice to how I am feeling right now,” he wrote.
CEO Deepinder Goyal confirmd Gupta’s exit. “Thank you GG for everything you have helped Zomato achieve over the last few years,” he wrote in a blog.
Gupta had joined Zomato as Business Head for table reservations in 2015 and was elevated to Co-Founder in 2019 to focus on launching the company’s nutrition business. That vertical was officially shut down last week.
He was also a part of the team that launched Zomato Pro and looked at ways to improve the merchant experience on the platform.
