[India], Feb. 15 (ANI): Treebo Hotels has appointed Abhishek Sharma, former COO at Opinio, for a strategic role.
Abhishek has joined the Founder's Office, a cross-functional cell, set-up to drive strategic priorities for the business. As part of the team, Abhishek will be responsible for working on key cross-functional initiatives for the company.
The Founders' Office is a team that works closely with the co-founders - Rahul Chaudhary, Sidharth Gupta and Kadam Jeet Jain, in running near term experiments and projects for immediate impact, as well as in building mid to long term capabilities for the organisation The new appointment is indicative of Treebo's plans to further strengthen its strategic position in the ecosystem by building a strong leadership team.
"Treebo is plugging a significant gap in the Indian market by organising the massively unorganised budget accommodation space while also ensuring that customer experience goes beyond just clean rooms and affordability," said Sharma.
"Several other companies, especially startups like Myntra and InMobi, have used Founders' Office type constructs effectively. We felt we could benefit from it too and decided to create this role at Treebo. Abhishek's diverse experience across consulting and operations roles, and his own entrepreneurial stint will together prove valuable in driving some of our strategic priorities," added Rahul Chaudhary, Co-Founder, Treebo Hotels.
Prior to joining Treebo, Abhishek was spearheading operations at Opinio as Chief Operating Officer. Before signing up for the operations role, he built and led Product and Profit and Loss for the Scheduled Logistics business at Opinio.
