HomeLane elevates Tanuj Choudhry as its Co-founder and COO
HomeLane, the tech-based home interior company, on Monday announced that it has elevated Tanuj Choudhry as its Co-founder and Chief Operating Officer.
According to a statement by the Bengaluru-based company, Tanuj now will be responsible for managing HomeLane’s overall business operations and driving the company’s long-term growth strategy.
The announcement was made by Co-Founder and CEO Srikanth Iyer in an internal email to employees. He said,
"Tanuj joined us in our early days and has been instrumental in building HomeLane into what it is today. Our revenues have grown five-fold in the last four years, and he deserves most of the credit for that. As we double-down on profitability without losing sight of growth, Tanuj's experience as a leader and organisation builder will be critical. I am extremely pleased to have him as a Co-founder."
