Team Management Shuffle- Myntra hires new CMO, BluFin appoints Chairman


Top management is key for any company, be it a growth stage startup or a full fledged corporate. Hiring the correct people at the top is very crucial for building a culture within the team. Emanating from the founder/co-founders, the top management plays a key role in channeling this spirit further. There have been two such developments:

1) Myntra has announced the appointment of Vikas Ahuja as the Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) who will be responsible for the sales and marketing functions and driving the overall brand strategy at Myntra. Mukesh Bansal, CEO & Co-Founder, Myntra said, "Vikas has an excellent track record of building and scaling businesses, and we are truly convinced, with his strong leadership qualities, Vikas will be a tremendous asset in helping us shape and create the next phase in our evolution."

With over 18 years of sales and marketing experience, Vikas has held various leadership roles and in his last role as Country Business Manager at Nestle, he was responsible for setting up new businesses.
