Earlier, Rakesh was working as the business head at Zomato. His elevation to CEO has come after the online food delivery platform reported better-than-expected fourth-quarter results.
In addition to the CEO appointment, Zomato has also named Rinshul Chandra as COO of the food ordering and delivery business and Rishi Arora as CEO of Hyperpure, a subsidiary of the company.
Before being named as COO, Chandra was vice president of product at the company.
Arora worked as senior vice president of operations at Zomato-owned quick commerce platform Blinkit, before being elevated as its co-founder last year.
