Setting a new precedence in the corporate governance, as part of its 10th year celebration, India’s largest ecommerce company Flipkart on Tuesday anointed its warehouse executive Padmini Pagadala as CEO for a day.

Thirty-four-year old Padmini, who is an Associate Director Design, and has been with the company for the past four years and designed Fulfillment Centres, became the ‘CEO for a Day’ and took stock of the business.

 “My day started with breakfast with our CEO Kalyan Krishnamurthy and then I attended a few meetings that is a part of Kalyan’s schedule everyday. He introduced me to the people that he works with and so far, it has been a wonderful learning experience,” she said.

Asked about what she will take back home from her experience, Padmini said as the CEO, Krishnamurthy is both a tough boss and a humble man. “I would like to have some of these qualities,” she said.

Flipkart invited entries from ‘Flipsters’ (Flipkart employees) across the country and selected Padmini.  According to Flipkart CEO, the competition is intended to help gain fresh perspective and insights as well as to make it fun and engaging initiative for employees.
