Cleartrip's CFO Aditya Agarwal resigns, Akshat Mishra takes over

Cleartrip, a traveltech platform and a subsidiary of Flipkart, has announced a significant shift in its financial leadership

Aditya Agarwal, the Chief Financial Officer, will be stepping down due to personal reasons. Agarwal has been a vital part of Cleartrip for nine years, significantly shaping the company's financial strategy and growth.

He has held various roles within the company, including CFO since 2020 and previously as head of corporate strategy and M&A. His tenure included pivotal contributions during the merger and integration of Cleartrip into the Flipkart Group.

New appointment


Following Agarwal's departure, Akshat Mishra will assume the role of Head of Business Finance. With two years in Cleartrip’s business finance team and an eight-year tenure within the Flipkart group, Mishra is well-prepared to steer Cleartrip’s financial operations.

His deep understanding of Cleartrip’s operations and the broader ecosystem will be invaluable as the company continues to navigate the competitive online travel market.

Leadership comments

Commenting on the leadership transition, Cleartrip said that Agarwal will remain with the company for a few months to ensure a smooth transition. The change reflects Cleartrip’s commitment to nurturing internal talent and maintaining continuity in leadership. The company expressed confidence in Mishra’s capabilities to lead the financial strategy forward.

Established in 2006 and becoming part of Flipkart in April 2021, Cleartrip has grown to become India's second-largest online travel aggregator. The company is focused on expanding its offerings and enhancing customer experiences as it continues to thrive in a dynamic market environment.

Reflecting on his tenure, Aditya Agarwal shared, "It has been an honour to be part of Cleartrip's journey, contributing to its growth and strategic direction. I am confident in Akshat’s ability to lead the finance team and continue our path of innovation and excellence."

Akshat Mishra commented on his new role, "I am excited to take on this role and build upon the strong foundation laid by Aditya. We are poised for further growth, and I look forward to contributing to our success."
