Gurgaon-based Jasper Infotech Pvt Ltd, which runs Online marketplace Snapdeal has appointed Anup Vikal as its Chief Financial Officer, the New Delhi-headquartered company announced on Tuesday.
Prior to joining Aircel as Chief Financial Officer, Vikal was the group CFO and head of strategy and IT at InterGlobe Enterprises, handling multiple responsibilities, including, incubating and developing new business, mergers and acquisitions and portfolio management.
Earlier, Anup has also served as Director and Head of Finance Shared Services for Colt Technology for 3 years and Bharti Airtel where he headed the Finance division for close to 7 years.
“We are very excited to have Anup on-board. His wealth of experience in building and executing the financial infrastructure in companies across complex large organisations in the country will further strengthen our leadership team,” said Snapdeal co-founder and chief executive, Kunal Bahl.
The appointment indicates the scramble for top talent among India’s large e-tailers, who are looking to bring on board people with experience to support the rapid pace of expansion in the industry.
Snapdeal has made several senior hires in recent months, including at least two in the finance team. It hired former Procter & Gamble executive Amit Choudhary as its senior vice president of corporate finance and named former Unilever executive Vivek Patankar as senior vice president of finance.
