Harappa announces key leadership appointments

Harappa, an online learning institution for behavioral, social, and cognitive skills, has announced the appointment of Seema Chowdhry as chief learning officer, Harappa School of Leadership, Rohit Madhok as chief technology officer, Harappa, and Nigel Patrick Eccleston as vice president, consumer product, Harappa. 

The company has also elevated Dhruv Mehra as head of international business.

These announcements are in line with the company’s plans to achieve exponential growth on key frontiers: to expand its enterprise business, shape and scale the consumer business, and grow its new school of leadership into a global online institution, the edtech startup said in a statement on Thursday.

It’s an exciting homecoming for Chowdhry, who has previously spent more than 2.5 years at Harappa, and before her stint in education, has been a senior journalist and editor. During her first tenure at Harappa, she shaped the company’s signature curriculum, conceptualised its cohort-based blended delivery, and created its award-winning flagship programs for enterprises. 

In her new role, she will be responsible for shaping and building the brand, launching best-in-class programs for ambitious mid-career professionals, and ensure these reach the right learner audience, right faculty, and right recruiters. She comes back to Harappa after spending nearly a year at a global education firm, where she led delivery across India & APAC, and program design for APAC.

Bringing 22 years of expertise in engineering, strategy, and execution to Harappa, Madhok is responsible for building unparalleled enterprise and consumer learning products. He has deep experience in establishing technology excellence at high-growth start-ups and enjoys the challenge that comes from building products that need to get big.

On the consumer product side, Eccleston brings his vast experience of working with start-ups and media giants, to Harappa. He is responsible for scaling Harappa's consumer products across the web and app.

“As founders, you dream and aspire for your company to be world-class, in every which way. With the addition of such incredible colleagues, we continue to march forth on that journey. They all bring a powerful combination of deep commitment, experience, and curiosity, and it’s our privilege to have them lead such important mandates for Harappa’s growth,” said Shreyasi Singh, founder & CEO, Harappa on the appointments.

“We’re also making a deliberate and systematic effort to launch in the US. Dhruv Mehra, our director of consumer business, and a cherished colleague of more than two years has been given the additional mandate of leading our international business. With his elevation as head of international business, Harappa is set to take its offering to the largest learning market in the world,” she added.
