India's largest online marketplace Snapdeal has announced the appointment of Housing.com's CEO Jason Kothari as its Chief Strategy and Investment Officer. Jason will work alongside co-founders, Kunal Bahl and Rohit Bansal in this key leadership role and will be joining Snapdeal on January 16, 2017. Following this, in January 2017, Housing.com merged with News Corp-backed real estate brokerage firm PropTiger and raised $55 million from Real Estate Australia (REA) Group and Softbank to create the largest digital real estate company in India. Rohit and I warmly welcome Jason to the Snapdeal family and believe we will achieve even greater heights with his addition," said co-founder and CEO Snapdeal, Kunal Bahl. Snapdeal is on its way to building one of India's best companies, and I look forward to helping in making that potential a reality," said Jason Kothari.
