As reported & #BANNER1 & # by this website in May, Sharath Dhall had quit Indiatimes as director of ecommerce. Dhall has now been appointed online travel portal Expedia.com as its head of India operations, reports Alootechie.
A source familiar with the development confirmed the appointment, but when contacted, Dhall refused to comment. Prior to joining Times Internet Ltd (TIL) about a year-and-a-half ago, Dhall was working for HLL (now, HUL) as business head of its rural venture, Project Shakti. He has 14 years of experience and has also worked with Asian Paints.
As the travel space in India continues its upward rise, the entry of a global leader like Expedia, with its huge international resources, is certainly going to give existing players some tough competition.
