26 April, 2017

The Tata Group’s e-commerce venture, TataCLiQ.com, has appointed Sauvik Banerjjee as chief technology officer, Kishore Mardikar as chief of marketing, and Behram Sabawala as chief financial officer, a company statement said.

Banerjjee, who has doctorates from the University of Sunderland and Durham University, has previously built two successful startups and is on the board of advisors for several companies and startups alike. Prior to joining TataCLiQ.com, Banerjjee was the technology head at SAP Global’s omni-channel and digital vertical and was responsible for developing the tech architecture for TataCLiQ.com and Reliance Jio.

Mardikar has held key positions at Tata Teleservices Ltd. and Roots Corporation Ltd (Ginger Hotels). Prior to joining TataCLiQ.com, he served as the vice president of marketing at Tata SIA Airlines Limited (Vistara)

Sabawala, a chartered accountant, joined the Tata Group in January 2002 as chief of corporate finance at Tata International Ltd., and has since moved within the Tata Group to Voltas Ltd., where he was senior general manager finance and CFO of products.

TataCLiQ.com has witnessed multifold growth since its launch in May 2016 and is looking to foray into new categories and expand its brand portfolio.

Tata CLiQ, incubated by Tata Industries Ltd, follows a phygital approach, where shoppers can order, collect, return and exchange products either online or at brand partners’ stores.

The venture’s leadership team also includes Vikas Purohit, who is the chief operating officer and Reuben Pandian, who leads the omni-channel division.

Many other traditional retail operators also have e-commerce divisions. While Aditya Birla Group operates Abof, Reliance Industries runs Ajio.com.
