GUNJAN SONI, 38

Head, Jabong | Chief Marketing Officer, Myntra

Previous Rank : NA

Gunjan Soni has two jobs. Both almost equally important. So far she seems to be carrying them exceedingly well— after helping make Myntra a popular fashion destination, she is turning the tide at Jabong. The 38-year-old has been the chief marketing officer at Myntra, the flagship fashion website, since 2015, and last April was given the additional responsibility of head of Jabong after the group acquired the Gurugram-based company. It is a hot seat certainly, but one that has its share of challenges. So far, she seems to be turning the tide. Jabong launched over 180 brands last year and its revenue has grown by 40% since the acquisition in July 2016—a significant figure for a company that was shrinking by 20% previously.
