Glenn Gore, Group CEO, LemmaTree said, “Finding a CEO who has strong alignment to the GoodWorker vision was critical to deliver the impact that GoodWorker can have on blue/grey collar workers, this was a search that we were not going to rush or compromise on.
We wanted to make sure that the person we get to lead the company is not just result driven but is aligned with our core objective of ‘transforming lives’ of millions of youth across India. Amit is the perfect choice for the role, given his strong understanding of the industry and his belief in the purpose.
