BENGALURU: Walmart India’s corporate affairs head Rajneesh Kumar has joined Flipkart as its chief corporate affairs officer.
Although the appointment came to light on a day when Flipkart’s Binny Bansal exited the etailer, people aware of the matter said that the two developments were not related and that Kumar had joined the company on November 5.
“While the move may not be related to Binny’s exit, it seems to be timed to ensure a better grip on things,” said one of the persons, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
Kumar will look at public policy, corporate social responsibility and communications as part of his job.
Earlier, Walmart had moved several executives in areas including finance and compliance to Flipkart after completing acquisition of the company.
