You probably know Punit Soni best from his brief run as VP for product management at Motorola Mobility when it was owned by Google. After leaving Google in September, Soni has now announced that he's found his next gig. He'll be spending the next few years in India as the chief product officer of Flipkart.
The name Flipkart might be vaguely familiar to those outside of India, but it's a big deal over there with more than $1 billion in revenue last year. Flipkart makes all that money by selling clothing, furniture, and a lot of electronics. It was one of the main points of sale for the Motorola devices Soni oversaw like the Moto G and Moto E.
Flipkart is only in India right now, but Soni says he plans to build it into a "product company with a global ambition." So maybe one day you'll get to order from Flipkart outside of India thanks to Punit Soni.
