Premji Invest-backed eyewear company Lenskart has roped in former Snapdeal executive Saurabh Bansal as Senior Vice President – Buying and Merchandising. Bansal had recently quit from the struggling e-commerce firm, which is under consideration for merger with India’s largest e-commerce firm — Flipkart.
