Ola Electric’s CBO Ankush Aggarwal joins Ola Financial Services as CEO

Ola Electric

ANI Technologies, the parent company of ride hailing company Ola, has appointed Ankush Aggarwal as the chief executive officer of Ola Financial Services. 

His appointment comes on the backdrop of resignation of Hemant Bakshi as CEO of the ride hailing business. Bakshi was leading the mobility business along with a focus on key businesses such as financial services, logistics, and e-commerce.

As per an ET report, Ankush Aggarwal will be a part of the senior leadership of Ola Cabs. 

In March 2022, Ankush Aggarwal (brother of Ola’s founder Bhavish Aggarwal) sold his startup Avail Finance to ANI Technologies for about $50 million in a share swap deal. After the deal, he joined Ola Electric, a separate company founded by Bhavish Aggawral, as the chief business officer (CBO). 

While Ola is yet to name the new chief executive of the ride hailing business, Bhavish Aggarwal will look after the day-to-day operations of the company.

Entrackr has reached out to Ola for comment.

Earlier this year, Ola announced that it had turned EBITDA profitable in FY23.  During the period, its revenue jumped 42% to Rs 2,799 crore as compared to Rs 1,970 crore in FY22. The firm managed to cut down its losses by nearly 50% to Rs 772 crore during FY23 against Rs 1,522 crore in the previous year.

Last month, Ola announced that it is rolling back its services from international markets such as the UK, Australia and New Zealand. ​​The move is likely due to its shift in attention towards launching an initial public offering. As per media reports, Ola is gearing up for the IPO and has finanlised book running lead managers for going public.
