One of India’s three largest online travel agencies Cleartrip‘s senior vice-president (Technology) Satish Mani has called it a day at the firm.
Confirming the development, a company spokesperson told VCCircle, COO PKX Thomas is currently in charge of technology. Cleartrip is ranked as one of the three largest online travel firm in India, after Makemytrip.com, which just announced 56.7% rise in revenues to $35.79 million for the quarter. The other is Yatra.com. Mani could not be reached at the time of posting this article. His Linkedin profile currently reads “Technology Professional.”
The spokesperson declined to comment on whether Mani’s exit would impact operations as Cleartrip is a technology-led firm. Mumbai-headquartered Cleartrip does not have a CTO position – Thomas was promoted from CTO to COO in March 2009. Mani was stationed in the company’s Bangalore office.
Mani joined Cleartrip in January 2008 from startup Visible Path Corporation, where he was a VP, Technology. Prior to that, he was with Oracle Corporation as Group Manager, Product Development. He was Director of Technology for a microbiology firm Focus MRL, now Focus Diagnostics, Inc, in 1995-2000.
