In his new position, Swaminathan, who was leading HUL’s deodorant and oral care division as a vice president, will support Swiggy’s marketing expansion.
With seventeen years of tenure at HUL, Swaminathan led the development of the green tea division and oversaw the expansion of its dental and cosmetic firms, Pepsodent and Closeup, as reported by Inc42.
