Flipkart's Kalyan Krishnamurthy is going to make way for new CEO. Here’s the catch

Flipkart is celebrating ten years and as a part of the jubilation, it is giving its employees a chance to become the CEO for a day.

Yes, CEO Kalyan Krishnamurthy will hang his boots just for one day. Flipkart is hosting an ingenious competition for its employees to win the chance to spearhead India’s largest e-commerce company for one day.

As 'CEO of the Day', the winner will take stock of the business, attend key stakeholder meetings and hand out action points, with Krishnamurthy accompanying him/her. To stand a chance to win, applicants will be required to write a statement of purpose stating why they should be selected to be the CEO for a day.

Krishnamurthy said, "This is a fantastic opportunity for our talented Flipsters to get a taste of what it means to be CEO of a large, innovative company like Flipkart. We have a talented pool of people leading high intensity teams who are helping us disrupt and innovate. Through the Big10 CEO for a day competition, we intend to gain some fresh perspective and insights, as well as make it a fun, engaging initiative for our people.”

The winner will meet Krishnamurthy over breakfast, followed by some power packed meetings.


Flipkart was launched in October 2007.
