Ex-Advaya partner, OYO GC Smriti Subramanian mans Snapdeal's 9-month-vacant GC role

From one Softbank-backed start up to another, OYO's Smriti Subramanian now Snapdeal GC
From one Softbank-backed start up to another, OYO's Smriti Subramanian now Snapdeal GC

Former OYO Rooms general counsel Smriti Subramanian who was a partner at Advaya Legal, has joined Snapdeal as general counsel (GC) this week replacing former GC Ashish Chandra.

The development was first reported by VCCircle which without naming Subramanian reported that Snapdeal - India's third largest e-commerce company is set to get a GC after it had poached the legal head of another Softbank-backed start up. The remaining report is behind a paywall.

A NLSIU Bangalore 2001 alumnus, Subramanian began her career in house at ITC Limited, moved to Economic Laws Practice, briefly practised independently, went in house at the BG Group, moved to Advaya and was in house at Bharat Petroleum before joining OYO in July 2016.

Her experience is in the corporate commercial practice with focus on energy, natural resources, infrastructure and consumer goods industries, according to her Linkedin profile.

We have reached out to her for comment.

Chandra had joined Malaysian media and entertainment company Astro Malaysia Holdings in August 2017 after exiting Snapdeal in April 2017, as we had reported.

Snapdeal's former Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Anup Vikal, who was also acting as its GC after Chandra left, also resigned in October 2017. He joined Essar Oil as CFO in November 2017.

Chandra and Vikal's exit from the Jasper Infotech owned, Softbank-backed start up was in the aftermath of it announcing a merger with Flipkart. However, that merger eventually fell through.
