Zomato Co-founder Gaurav Gupta step down to take an alternate path

Gaurav Gupta, a co-founder, and head of supply of online food delivery startup Zomato has quit the company, CEO Deepinder Goyal confirmed in a post.

Gaurav Gupta wrote in a post, “I am taking a new turn in my life and will be starting a new chapter, taking a lot from this defining chapter of my life—the last six years at Zomato,". "We have a great team now to take Zomato forward and it’s time for me to take an alternate path in my journey. I am very emotional as I write this and don’t think any words can do justice to how I am feeling right now."

He said that he was enamored with Zomato and can always be. Came in 6 years back not knowing what this could end up to be. And what a mind-blowing and amazing journey this has been. Feel pleased with where we are today, what we've got overcome to induce here, and feel even happier with what we'll achieve within the future

"There is so much of our journey still ahead of us, and I am thankful that you are hanging your boots at a point where we have a great team and leadership to carry us forward," Goyal said.

Deepinder Goyal also said that he could not yet imagine life at the company without him.
