Punit Soni, chief product officer at India’s largest ecommerce platform Flipkart has quit after spending less than 13 months in the company. Soni, an expert on mobile technology and who was one of Flipkart’s most high profile lateral hires from Google Inc had joined the company in March last year.
A Flipkart spokesperson confirmed Soni’s exit but did not offer any reason for his departure in less than 13 months after joining the company. This Friday will be Soni’s last day in Flipkart.
Soni’s exit also comes on top of two other major exits in Flipkart in the last three months. In February this year, the company’s head of commerce platform Mukesh Bansal along with chief business officer Anikt Nagori had put in their papers. While Bansal left the company in March, Nagori will be leaving end of May this year.
