Zomato Co-Founder Gaurav Gupta has decided to leave the food tech platform, the company stated in a blogpost on Tuesday. Mr Gupta or GG, as he is popularly known, joined Zomato in 2015 and was elevated as Chief Operating Officer (COO) in 2018 and as Founder in 2019.
In an internal mail, he wrote: “I am taking a new turn in my life and will be starting a new chapter, taking a lot from this defining chapter of my life – the last 6 years at Zomato. We have a great team now to take Zomato forward and it’s time for me to take an alternate path in my journey. I am very emotional as I write this and don’t think any words can do justice to how I am feeling right now.”
