Flipkart loses one more top executive

Yet another senior executive at Bengaluru-based e-commerce company Flipkart has resigned. This comes a little over a month after Mr. Mukesh Bansal, who was head of its commerce and advertising business, and Mr. Ankit Nagori, chief business officer, put in their papers. Mr. Manish Maheshwari, who was vice-president and head seller ecosystem at Flipkart, has resigned to join Web18, internet and mobile arm of Network18 as its chief executive Officer. Mr. Maheshwari who was with Flipkart for more than a year, was instrumental in building its seller ecosystem, bringing in a host of international brands to the portal as well as adding more vendors on its platform. The 39-year-old new CEO of Web18 said that the move is purely professional. “It is a professional move. I had a great stint at Flipkart and was able to build a good seller ecosystem among other things,” he said. In February, Mr. Mukesh Bansal resigned weeks after a top-level restructuring put co-founder Mr. Binny Bansal on the CEO's seat. Soon after, Mr. Ankit Nagori resigned.
