NEW DELHI: Zomato has named company insider Akriti Chopra as its new finance head. Chopra’s appointment was approved by the Zomato board at a meeting held on November 8, according to a research note published by business intelligence platform paper.vc.
A spokesperson for Zomato told ET that Chopra had been elevated to the role in April. “Akriti has been building our finance and legal teams for more than 8 years now. Her analytical bent of mind, high level of ownership and moral authority make her a great fit for a CFO role at Zomato,” said Deepinder Goyal, chief executive of Zomato, in an email.
The appointment of the chartered accountant comes nearly a year after its previous chief financial officer, Sameer Maheshwary, resigned from the company after having spent less than six months at the food delivery platform.
