In a bid to become the number one food delivery service, Swiggy has strengthened its senior management team across operational roles. The company announced the appointment of Vishal Bhatia as the CEO of New Supply and Rahul Bothra as its first-ever CFO.

Bhatia was previously in charge of organizations like Reckitt Benckiser(RB), PepsiCo and Britannia. In his recent stint at the RB’s headquarters in the UK, Bhatia led the global growth strategy and the related innovation agenda on the Dettol personal hygiene portfolio, creating one of the fastest growing segments for the business.

Bhatia’s role will focus on using the ‘New Supply’ business line to plug existing supply gaps in the marketplace, including enabling partner restaurants to expand their businesses as also for resolving consumer gaps in assortment availability.

The company announced its first New Supply initiative, Swiggy Access last month. Through Access, Swiggy brings a variety of food to consumers by enabling plug-and-play expansion for restaurant partners in different areas.

Bothra joined Swiggy from OLAM International, where, as the Divisional CFO he provided functional leadership to their global cotton operations across 16 countries. Prior to OLAM International, Bothra has held senior finance roles in Britannia Industries and Wipro Limited.

Sriharsha Majety, CEO, Swiggy, said, “As Swiggy prepares for the next phase in our growth, the new leaders will spearhead strategic initiatives that will create sustainable long-term value for our consumers and the marketplace. This requires concerted efforts and a very strong understanding of the consumer, coupled with the execution excellence that they bring onboard.”
