Two-wheeler consumer brand, CredR, announced the appointment of Subas Hota as the new Head of Data Science & Technology, effective from October 2020. In this new role, Subas will be in charge of building data systems and technologies at the company. Subas will lead the engineering teams at the company and will report directly to Chief Strategy Officer, Sasidhar Nandigam.
This move comes as the first in a series of senior-level recruitments for the company. CredR has recently completed 5 years in business and has been aggressively building new and innovative products along with major business tie-ups in the last few months.
Subas brings with him a wealth of 20+ years’ experience in data science and technology across reputed companies from Kirloskar to Target retail. In his role as Director of Data Science at Target, he was responsible for building business intelligence portfolios globally across 1800+ stores. He has effectively managed data warehousing for key functions in the organization such as Financial Retail Services, Guest Service Centre, Human Resource, Law, Risk, and Compliance. He was also responsible for a team of over a few hundreds of data engineers working globally.
“We are really glad to have an experienced eye like Subas on the team as this will help us build data-driven business solutions and technology to serve our customers. We are looking at bringing a tighter focus on data being the key determinant of all our business moves and strategies, going forward”, said Sasidhar Nandigam.
CredR operates in a market that is highly fragmented and lacks information and data standardization. Subas will be key in building these metrics as CredR leads the efforts to organize the highly unorganized used 2W market, concluded Mr. Nandigam.
“CredR, over the years, has established itself as the default option for customers, looking for good quality used 2Ws at reasonable prices. No better time than now to join CredR as it transforms from startup to maturation and data science shall play a massive role in this transformation. Very excited to build tech systems and processes for CredR which operates in a market segment which never saw tech intervention till date and when you add the complexity of scaling up to this, makes my role very challenging and I’m grateful for the opportunity”, said Mr. Hota on the occasion of his appointment.
