Aman Priyadarshi, the former business head of dining at Zomato, resigned from his post to join Sequoia Capital-backed Kenko as the head of product. 

In his LinkedIn post, Priyadarshi wrote, “Big career update. I've moved on from Zomato (farewell post coming soon) to now build India's most trusted healthcare financing company with Aniruddha Sen & Dhiraj Goel.”

“Kenko Health is the hardest challenge I will face and I look forward to potentially doing the best work of my career, building India's finest consumer-internet team, and most importantly, saving lives by freeing India from its healthcare curses,” he also added. 

Priyadarshi joined Zomato in September 2020 and served the food tech unicorn for more than two and a half years. He helped the unicorn to scale its online food operations in locations like Istanbul. 

Priyardashi’s resignation came at a time when the Deepinder Goyal-led start-up is witnessing a slew of exits by top-level executives. Gunjan Patidar, one of the co-founders and chief technology officer (CTO), stepped down from his post in January 2023. Prior to him, Mohit Gupta, one of the co-founders of Zomato, Siddharth Jhawar, the head of its intercity legend services and Rahul Ganjoo, the head of initiatives, left the company. 

The food tech giant witnessed a sharp rise in revenue in the financial year (FY) 2022. In FY22, the company was successful to achieve Rs 4,192 crore, registering a 2x increase from what it earned in FY21. It also narrowed down its loss in the second quarter of FY22 to Rs 251 crore from Rs 430 crore in the correspondent quarter of FY21.
