Zomato Ltd.’s co-founder Mohit Gupta has resigned amid a spate of top-level exits at the restaurant aggregator.
Gupta has tendered his resignation, the Deepinder Goyal-led company informed exchanges on Friday without citing the reason behind his exit.
Gupta had been with Zomato for four-and-a-half years. He was among the top executives elevated to the status of co-founder ahead of Zomato’s IPO last year.
“I remain a long only investor in Zomato,” Gupta said in his farewell message, which was shared with the exchanges.
“Thanks to you, I feel confident that I can continue to build on top of your legacy and build a bigger and better company going forward,” Goyal said in response to Gupta’s message. “Thanks once again; I know you will always be around for me, but still, you will be sorely missed.”
In the exchange filing, Zomato said that Gupta was not designated as a key managerial personnel.
Earlier this week, Rahul Ganjoo, the head of new initiatives, had exited the company. Siddharth Jhawar, vice president and head of Zomato’s intercity legends service, disclosed last week that he has left the restaurant search and food delivery firm.
