Ex-Wipro executive Sridhar Govardhan has joined Flipkart as Senior Director & Head of Information Security. In his new role, Govardhan will be based in Bengaluru.
Govardhan joins Flipkart after having completed 14 successful years in Wipro. His journey at Wipro started as Senior Manager- Information Security in 2005 and culminated in him becoming the Chief Information Security Officer.
Govardhan holds a Masters's degree in Technology from Birla Institute of Technology and Science, Pilani. Given the rising importance of cybersecurity in today’s times where technology is playing a critical role in both new age and traditional businesses, Govardhan will have a critical role to play at Flipkart.
The ecommerce firm has seen a slew of changes at the top helm in recent times. Last month, Flipkart has promoted Jeyandran Venugopal as its Chief Product and Technology Officer (CPTO). This elevation was a part of a rearrangement within the senior management team at the company. This month, after working with Flipkart for one year, the Chief Human Resource Officer, Smriti Singh, stepped down from her role.
