Bengaluru: Homegrown e-commerce giant Flipkart today announced that Mukesh Bansal, Head of Commerce Platform, is leaving the company, ending his two-year stint which he described as “nothing short of a fairy tale.” Bansal would, however, be an advisor to the company, Flipkart said in a statement.

In a development that comes weeks after the rejig at the top level, the company also said that Ankit Nagori, Chief Business Officer, Flipkart, is also moving on to start an entrepreneurial venture in the sports domain.

“Mukesh Bansal, Head of Commerce Platform, Flipkart is  moving out of his active role to be an advisor to the company,” it added. “Mukesh has played a huge role in making Myntra the number one fashion destination and helped build a strong platform at Flipkart, including India's strongest leadership team,” the statement said.  Thanking Mukesh and Ankit for their “invaluable contribution” to the growth of Flipkart, the company has wished them “all the best.”

Mukesh, in a letter to employees, said, “My incredible journey with Myntra and Flipkart comes to an end. It has been  amazing nine years filled with lot of learning, privilege to  work with outstanding people and chance to participate in  building future industry of India that will impact hundred of  millions of people.”

Stating that he never dreamt in “wildest imagination” that will come this far, when he and Ashutosh Lawania started Myntra in 2007, he said, “What's even more amazing is that it  seems we are just getting started and the journey ahead for  Flipkart/Myntra is going to be even more fascinating and at  the scale that India has never seen before.”
