Snapdeal Limited has appointed Himanshu Chakrawarti as president of the company. As president, Chakrawarti will lead various functions at Snapdeal to drive the company’s Bharat-focused, value commerce strategy and steer various growth-related and operational initiatives.

We look forward to benefiting from his experience and leadership as we collectively continue to build our Bharat-focused, value commerce platform,” he added.

He also led the direct integration of over 75 stores with top e-commerce platforms and enabled real-time inventory visibility and fulfillment. Before joining Unlimited Fashion, he was the CEO of Hi-Care Services, which was backed by the leading PE Fund, True North.
