Emily McNeal, Group Chief Financial Officer of Flipkart has stepped down from her role.

Speaking on this change, Kalyan Krishnamurthy, Chief Executive Officer, Flipkart Group, said, “We thank Emily for her leadership and guidance in strengthening the governance process and financial reporting at Flipkart post the Walmart investment. She has been instrumental in driving key investments that have enhanced our hyperlocal and fresh food capabilities and has been a strong partner in our organization’s Diversity and Inclusivity journey. 

“Sriram has consistently demonstrated his expertise managing several diverse functions at Flipkart and is well poised to take on the responsibilities as Flipkart Commerce CFO. I wish both Emily and Sriram the best for their future endeavors.” 

Sriram will begin reporting to Chris Nicholas, Executive Vice President and CFO, Walmart International.
