[India], Jan 12 (ANI): India's fastest growing fashion marketplace Voonik has announced the appointment of Himmat Singh Padode as its Chief Data Scientist.
The company has been revamping the top leadership team recently and has appointed Prabhakar Sunder, former Finance Head of Myntra, as CFO and Amazon Veteran Raghu Lakkapragada as COO. But this is the first time that the company has hired directly from Silicon Valley.
Himmat Singh has come back from US after working with Groupon, leading their international data team. He comes with 14 years of rich experience in data science and insights field, across companies like Essar, Religare and holds a BE and MBA degree.
"At Voonik, we are creating a technology driven fashion platform. Our key strength is our data- driven personalization model. As we grow and diversify, we want to get more precise on our personalization model and add layers and habits into the algorithm to show a highly personalised feed. Himmat has hands-on experience in data driven personalization and prediction models and is an ideal person to lead Voonik's Data team," said CEO and founder Voonik, Sujayath Ali.
"Voonik is building one-of-a-kind data based fashion company. I think, adding analytics to a completely impulse purchase based fashion category, is a leap of faith. I am very excited about the prospects of the role and the culture of the company," said Himmat Singh. (ANI)
