"Roposo has had a phenomenal growth story so far. As we prepare to helm the company into its next level of evolution, we are pleased to welcome Saurabh and Anand on board to lead the key divisions of Sales and Design," said Co-founder Roposo, Avinash Saxena.

At Roposo, Anand will look after the entire user interface and user experience. An alumnus of IIT Delhi with a Master's degree in Industrial Design, Anand has worked as a mentor and guest faculty at design schools in IIT Delhi and Ambedkar University's School of Design.

A design veteran with 10 years of experience in building and managing interdisciplinary teams in the product design and product strategy functions, Anand was previously associated with Delhivery, as its Senior Manager-Technology.

Through an enriched design offering, Roposo will be able to further establish its market leadership stance and make deeper inroads in the consumer mindscape across India," added Anand.

With a keen interest and expertise in building and shaping businesses to create a distinct market positioning, Saurabh's prime responsibility at Roposo will be to set up monetization channels across India for the fashion social network.

His 13 years of experience across FMCG, Telecom and Digital Media in Sales and Marketing sectors will enable him to tap the potential growth areas at Roposo.

He will focus on setting up advertising revenue strategies and will look at interest-based local hyper targeting systems for advertisers. Before heading the ad business for Ananda Bazar Patrika's digital arm, he was the founder of Ideacts Innovations, a Sequoia and SVB funded internet startup, where Saurabh developed the entire ad sales structure and business from scratch into a thriving model.

As the company has been crossing one milestone after the other, with a user base of three million and its ever growing popularity among celebrities and enthusiasts alike, these new appointments highlight function expansion within the team.

Roposo is now entering the next stage of growth and will be focusing on revenue generation along with its persistent endeavor of product development. (ANI)
