Online business-to-business (B2B) industrial goods marketplace Moglix has appointed Vivek Kashyap as its vice president for business development and supply partnerships.
He will be responsible for strengthening the functions of sales, strategic partnerships and supplier collaborations for the company.
Kashyap has over two decades of experience in areas of institutional sales and original equipment manufacturer (OEM) supplier networks for collaborative technical selling.
“Kashyap’s deep experience in building channels for institutional sales and supplier collaboration provides us with an opportunity to explore new vistas in the enterprise segment,” Rahul Garg, founder and CEO, Moglix, said.
Kashyap joins Moglix after stepping down from the role of general manager of services business and profit and loss management at Timken India. He has also worked with companies such as FAG Bearings India, Pan India Consultants and Alcast Technologies.
“Having worked in the OEM ecosystem previously, I am excited about the opportunities in creating new distribution models and forging new supplier partnerships to impact the procurement function for manufacturing businesses. Moglix has a great team and we are focused on building a large portfolio of the top OEM brands to fulfill customer requirements both in the domestic and global markets,” Kashyap said.
He is an engineering graduate from Utkal University in Bhubaneswar, and holds an MBA from the Management Development Institute in Gurugram.
Run by Noida-based Moglilabs, the company procures industrial products and largely caters to the manufacturing sector, focusing on automotive, metals, mining and fast-moving consumer durables. Moglix was founded in August 2015 by Garg, the former southeast Asia head of Google’s advertisement exchange services division.
In July last year, Moglix raised $60 million (Rs 410 crore at the current exchange rate) in a growth round, led by new investor Tiger Global.
