Swiggy ropes in Ex-P&G executive Vivek Sunder as Chief Operating Officer

At Swiggy, Sunder will be in-charge of developing and executing the firm's strategic direction and priorities to drive organizational growth and operational excellence.

In continuing with expanding its management leadership, food delivery firm Swiggy has appointed former P&G executive Vivek Sunder as first Chief Operating Officer. This is the first ever COO position at the Naspers and DST Global backed firm.

As COO of Swiggy, Sunder will be responsible for the company's operating units and be tasked with accelerating Swiggy’s mission of making the lives of consumers more convenient and hassle-free. The appointment is effective immediately.

“Swiggy’s strength lies in the quality and talent of our team, which has received an incredible boost with Vivek coming on board,” said Sriharsha Majety, CEO, Swiggy. “I am confident that his proven track record and extensive experience, coupled with a laser-focus on industry-leading operational practices will drive and extend Swiggy’s upward trajectory.”

With over 20 years of experience in the FMCG industry, Sunder has been working at the intersection of business and technology across several leadership roles and geographies at Procter & Gamble (P&G). In his most recent role as the Managing Director, P&G, East Africa, Sunder was instrumental in driving both top and bottom-line growth while expanding its market share and margins in a difficult macroeconomic climate.

At Swiggy, Sunder will be in-charge of developing and executing the firm's strategic direction and priorities to drive organizational growth and operational excellence.

The COO appointment comes shortly after Swiggy hired its first ever CFO in September last year. The firm has also been beefing up its leadership team across its new business vertical 'New Supply'.
