Amazon Veteran Raghu Lakkapragada joins Voonik as COO

New Delhi, Aug 16 : India's fastest growing fashion marketplace Voonik has announced the appointment of Raghu Lakkapragada as its Chief Operating Officer.

This is second senior appointment announcement coming from Voonik within a month, after the appointment of Prabhakar Sunder, former Finance Head of Myntra, as CFO.

Voonik is ramping up its top-management hiring to help transform the company from a start-up to a mature organization.

Voonik has also brought in experienced leaders in areas such as quality control and risk management. Raghu Lakkapragada, an Amazon veteran with 11 years of Amazon stint, built the seller-fulfilled business for Amazon India from the ground up.

As COO, he will ensure that the delivery, seller and customer experience of Voonik are exceeding the Amazon bar.

"Since Voonik doesn't do its own fulfillment, our model is similar to the seller-fulfilled business of Amazon India.

Raghu built this for Amazon India from the ground up and scaled it to millions of shipments," said CEO and Founder Voonik, Sujayath Ali.

"Armed with this experience, he as Voonik COO will help us take our customer and seller experience to the next level.

It also helps that I and Raghu went to B-School together and have known each other for 12 years out of which we worked at the same team at Amazon for 7 years," added Sujayath Ali.

Raghu Lakkapragada commented on his new role, "I'm delighted to join Voonik. The company has made its mark in the industry in a very short span of time. I am excited to begin my journey.".
