OYO has appointed Anil Goel as Chief Technology Officer and he will be responsible for driving the technology strategy and roadmap and cohesively integrating it with OYO’s business strategy, simultaneously identifying new opportunities, managing the R&D department, monitoring technological and social trends, communicating the technology plan to partners, management and employees, while maintaining current information regarding technology standards.

Goel joins OYO following a three-year tenure at Amazon.com as the Global Head of Technology (CTO) for Customer Returns and Reverse Logistics business. Prior to this, he was the CTO at Hike Messenger. He has also spent 15 years in Seattle, working in various technology development and leadership roles at RealNetworks, Capgemini and HyperQuality. A seasoned tech professional, he has nearly 20 years of experience in building complex software applications and systems, technology infrastructure and businesses to drive revenue growth, expand customer base and boost profitability.

Speaking on the appointment, Ritesh Agarwal, Founder and CEO, OYO said, “We are extremely excited to welcome Anil to OYO. We have witnessed tremendous growth during the past year and are poised at the cusp of significant transformation. Anil’s leadership, vast knowledge and diverse experience will provide added heft to the overall technology drive required in scaling up to meet and deliver the next phase of expansion at OYO.”

Goel elaborated, “OYO created history through a revolutionary and disruptive business model that had not been attempted anywhere in the world. The complexities in delivering end-to-end stay solutions for guests and innovative and intuitive partner-management-systems along with the strong reliance on Tech to drive business, makes this a great opportunity to contribute to OYO’s future growth and evolution. I look forward to working with OYO’s vibrant and talented teams.”

He holds a B.E. (Hons.) in Electrical & Electronics from BITS Pilani and earned his MBA in Marketing from City University of Seattle. When not busy playing with technology, he likes to go for long runs and cycling. He is also a big fan of adventure sports.
