Swiggy Instamart’s VP and Head of Supply Chain Management, Karan Arora, resigns

Swiggy Instamart’s vice president and head of supply chain management, Karan Arora, has announced his departure from the company after a three-and-a-half year tenure. Arora is the latest in a series of VPs and SVPs who have left Swiggy over the past year, including Dale Vaz, Ashish Lingamneni, and Nishad Kenkre.

In a LinkedIn post, Arora stated, “After 3.5 years of building Swiggy Instamart, this exhilarating journey of mine comes to an end.” He emphasized the rapid disruptions in the e-commerce space and expressed excitement about co-founding a new venture with Karthik Gurumurthy. The departure of Arora follows a trend of high-ranking executives leaving Swiggy to pursue other opportunities.

Arora’s departure comes after Instamart’s former CTO, Dale Vaz, left in April 2023 to start his own venture. Ashish Lingamneni, the VP and head of brand and product marketing, also departed in May, shortly after Nishad Kenkre, VP and head of revenue and growth, had left the company. These exits reflect a significant shift in leadership within Swiggy.

A Swiggy spokesperson commented on Arora’s departure, stating, “During his tenure of over 3.5 years with Swiggy, Karan has helped in building Swiggy Instamart. As he embarks on his entrepreneurial journey, we extend our best wishes and full support from the Swiggy team.” The departure of top executives like Arora, Vaz, Lingamneni, and others marks a period of transition for the company.
