Snapdeal is growing at lightning speed and it’s important for us to adopt a cohesive approach towards technology enabled processes to offer consumers a seamless experience. I am sure Rahul will play a notable role in bringing synergies within Snapdeal’s internal processes and I wish him luck as he starts his journey with Snapdeal.”
