Smriti Singh, senior vice president and chief HR officer at Flipkart, has quit after a nearly one-year stint, according to an email sent by CEO Kalyan Krishnamurthy to a select few executives.
Singh was overall responsible for people, talent, rewards, and learning and development at the Walmart-owned ecommerce company. She reported to Krishnamurthy. Singh joined Flipkart at a time when Walmart acquired the ecommerce giant for $16 billion.
“She had the responsibility of keeping the firm’s culture and transition smooth” said a source aware of Singh’s departure.
This is one of the first senior leadership exits after the departure of Ananth Narayanan, the CEO of Myntra and Jabong in January. “She has helped set the right direction for people and culture initiatives that will serve us well in the future… We thank her for the commitment and dedication,” Krishnamurthy said in the email.
