After spending six years at the company, Zomato co-founder, Gaurav Gupta, resigned, informing every employee through an internal email, saying that he will be starting a new chapter in his life.
Gupta, who has been the co-founder and the Head of Supply in Zomato, the online food delivery platform, wrote in a heartfelt mail, “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.”
Gaurav Gupta joined Zomato in 2015 and was elevated to the role of co-founder in 2019. He has been a crucial member of the team in helping build Zomato’s premium membership subscription, with its advertising and sales.
“I am in love with Zomato and will always be. Came in 6 years back not knowing what this would turn out to be. And what a mind blowing and amazing journey this has been. Feel proud of where we are today, what we have overcome to get here and feel even more proud of what we will achieve in the future,” Gupta said, according to the company’s blog.
He also thanked the CEO, Deepinder Goyal, for making him a part of the journey, who replied back with a thankful note of his own that said, “Thank you for being a better friend to me than anyone else I’ve ever had. I can’t yet imagine everyday life at Zomato without you. You will be sorely missed. All the best!”
