Myntra locks in Jeyandran Venugopal as  its new Chief Technology Officer

Flipkart-owned online fashion retailer Myntra has named former Amazon executive Jeyandran Venugopal as its new chief technology officer (CTO), replacing Ajit Narayanan, who has resigned from the company.

Venugopal becomes Myntra's third CTO in less than a year—before Narayanan took over the role in November last year, Shamik Sharma was Myntra's technology chief. He will be responsible for ramping up techno logy functions related to data analytics, artificial intelligence and machine learning, among other things. Prior to joining Myntra, Venugopal was heading his own start-up called Eclinic247, which helps consumers find and consult doctors online. Venugopal was also one of the founding members of Amazon's first offshore development centre in India that was set up in Bengaluru in 2004. Venugopal has also briefly worked at rival online marketplace Snapdeal as a technology advisor and as a senior engineering leader at Yahoo.
