#Asia Zomato Indonesia’s Country Manager resigns


His position is currently being taken over by Karthik Shetty, AVP International Operations of Zomato


Djunadi Satrio, Indonesia Country Manager of restaurant finder app Zomato, is reported to have resigned from his position, effective January 2016. His responsibilities will be taken over by Karthik Setty, AVP International Operations of Zomato, while the company is looking for his replacement.

Satrio was appointed to the position in April 2015. As Country Manager, he was in charge of Zomato’s expansion to Bali, growing the sales team, as well as increasing the number of users and vendors registered on the system.

During his tenure, he had announced plans to expand Zomato’s service to Indonesian cities outside of Jakarta and Denpasar, including Bandung, Surabaya and Medan. The company also released its White Label feature — a customisable platform for restaurant owners– under his leadership.

Reasons behind his resignation are still unclear, and e27 has reached out to Zomato for comment.

The year 2015 saw the rise and fall of Asian startups working in the food industry. Abratable and Abraresto (Indonesia and Singapore) closed down due to lack of funding, while foodpanda closed down its operations in Vietnam, while laying off 330 employees in its Indian operation.

Zomato also got its own share of the spotlight. In its home country India, though the company launched new delivery and chat messenger services in the same year, it also caught attention when founder Deepinder Goyal’s angry email to his sales team got leaked to the media. The company has also streamlined its operation by laying off 300 employees.
