Indian Startup Oyo, backed by Japan’s SoftBank Group, said on Thursday it had appointed former IndiGo airline president Aditya Ghosh as chief executive officer of its hotels business in South Asia.
Oyo, that has presence in more than 500 cities across India, Nepal, Malaysia, Indonesia, China, UAE and the United Kingdom, recently introduced homes into its stock.
Ghosh, a trained lawyer, quit IndiGo, the country’s top provider, in April after a 10-year stint.
“With Aditya taking with this mantle for our home markets, both India and the wider South Asia area, we are confident he will have the ability to assist Oyo Hotels set new benchmarks in the hospitality industry, and nurture a high performing workforce,” said Ritesh Agarwal, founder and team CEO of Oyo Hotels & Homes, in a declaration.
