New Delhi: Zomato on Thursday said it has hired long-time General Electric executive Sameer Maheshwary as its new chief financial officer (CFO).

He fills the role left vacant by Umesh Hora, who left in late 2015 to join as CFO of GirnarSoft Pvt Ltd, the company behind CarDekho.com.
“As we expand the canvas of our offerings, it is time for us to bring on stronger leaders at the helm of things. Sameer is an industry veteran, and has a core finance background supplemented with business leadership roles.
