Foodpanda appoints Printvenue founder Saurabh Kochhar as India CEO

Saurabh Kochhar

Rocket Internet-backed online food ordering service Foodpanda has appointed Saurabh Kochhar as its India CEO and chief business officer of global operations, reports ET Tech.

Kochhar is the founder of online printing solutions provider Printvenue, which incidentally is also backed by Rocket Internet. Kochhar is expected to continue serving as the CEO of Prinvenue. The report also mentions that Printvenue’s current chief marketing officer Gagan Arora is expected to be given additional responsibility, in order to allow Kochhar to focus on Foodpanda.

In his new role, Kochhar will be responsible for consolidation of operations in India and driving further growth in other markets. Kochhar is an IIT, Roorkee and IIM, Calcutta graduate, and has previously worked at Oracle India and McKinsey & Co. He is also the Group CEO of Printvenue, Zocprint and Officeyes.

Impending merger

TastyKhana and JustEat India, the two online ordering platforms Foodpanda has acquired, is also expected to be merged with Foodpanda, apparently by the end of 2015. It’s worth noting that TastyKhana began displaying the foodpanda logo alongside its own on its homepage. The homepage currently also reads the merger message, “TastyKhana will soon be merged with foodpanda”. A mail was also sent out today to TastyKhana users by the company’s CEO informing them of this move.

Earlier this year, Printvenue had secured $4.5 million funding from the Asia Pacific Internet Group. Printvenue has been expanding its international operations, and in September last year it had launched its operations in Australia. Earlier in 2013, it had started its operations in Singapore and at the time the company mentioned that 15% of its total revenues came from the Singapore market.
