The e-commerce major Flipkart has appointed a chief human resources officer and has reportedly brought in former HR head for Sony Pictures Networks India, Smriti Singh.
Flipkart CEO Kalyan Krishnamurthy sent a mail to employees on Tuesday announcing Singh’s appointment, stating that she will hold “overall responsibility for our people, talent, rewards, and L&D charter.”
Singh will report to Krishnamurthy, and will head a team of five senior directors. She will fill a post that has been vacant following the exit of former COO Nitin Sethi last year.
Singh has an experience of over two decades, having started at Xerox India followed by GE in India as well as in Tokyo, New York, and Singapore with GE Healthcare, Genpact and NBC Universal, before she joined Sony Pictures Network India in 2011. Singh is an alumnus of IMI, Delhi and Lady Sri Ram College.
