Fashion marketplace Voonik has recently announced the appointment of Raghu Lakkapragada as its Chief Operating Officer. The move is in tandem with company’s vision to transform it from a start-up to a mature organization.
Earlier this month, the company also appointed Prabhakar Sunder, former Finance Head of Myntra, as CFO. Voonik has also brought in experienced leaders in areas such as quality control and risk management.
Lakkapragada who has worked with Amazon for 11 years and built the seller-fulfilled business for Amazon India from the ground up, will ensure that the delivery, seller and customer experience of Voonik exceeds the best.
“Since Voonik doesn’t do its own fulfillment, our model is similar to the seller-fulfilled business of Amazon India. Raghu built this for Amazon India from the ground up and scaled it to millions of shipments,” CEO and Founder Voonik, Sujayath Ali, said in a statement.
“Armed with this experience, he as Voonik COO will help us take our customer and seller experience to the next level. It also helps that I and Raghu went to B-School together and have known each other for 12 years out of which we worked at the same team at Amazon for 7 years,” added Ali.
