MUMBAI: Former Hindustan Unilever general manager Vikas Gupta has reportedly joined Flipkart as head of marketing.

A media report quoted Flipkart group chief corporate affairs officer Rajneesh Kumar saying, “Vikas is joining Flipkart after a long, successful stint in Unilever where he has worked in multiple countries and in various functions. He is relocating from Indonesia.”

Gupta had been working with Hindustan Unilever for the past two decades and was working as the general manager at the home care division and VP digital transformation when he resigned.

Gupta penned down an emotional note on his LinkedIn profile as he bid adieu to HUL. He wrote, “I joined this great company in 1998. Over the last 20 years, it has been my home, my school, my playground, my family and my office. Not only did I get the opportunity to work on some of the biggest and most diverse challenges across multiple functions and product categories, I also got to experience living in 5 different countries cross 3 continents. Deep gratitude for everything I experienced, lived and learnt and most of all the wonderful friends I made in this time. Everything I am today, I owe to this beautiful place we call Unilever and the most talented, caring people that make it so. They say you can take a man out of Unilever but never take out Unilever from the man, so I leave with Unilever beating in my heart, always wishing for its success.  New adventures beckon, new challenges await. So long Unilever. Farewell for now...till we meet again!”
