In a huge development, Gaurav Gupta, one of the top executives of food tech platform Zomato has decided to leave the company.
Gupta, who joined Zomato in 2015 was elevated as Chief Operating Officer in 2018 and as the founder in 2019. He was the face of the company in the run up to the initial public offering (IPO), leading discussions with investors and the media.
His exit comes just few days after Zomato exited its grocery delivery and nutraceutical business.
