Vedanta, the mining company owned by Anil Agarwal, has announced a major change in its management. Ajay Goel is returning to the company as the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) after briefly joining the edtech firm Byju’s in the same capacity. Goel’s return comes after the news that the current CFO, Sonal Srivastava, may soon leave the company.
Vedanta has recently announced its plans for reorganization. Under the demerger plan, the company will separate its business into six different units. This restructuring aims to attract investors and improve the valuation of its subsidiary companies. Additionally, it will make it easier for Vedanta to sell off some assets and reduce its debt burden.
On the other hand, Byju’s has also made changes in its management. Nitin Golan has been appointed as the CFO, and Pradeep Kanakia has been named as a special advisor. Golan previously held the position of Chief Strategy Officer at Aakash Education, and his role was instrumental in Byju’s acquisition of Aakash last year.
As Vedanta and Byju’s undergo these management changes, both companies are positioning themselves for growth and strategic developments in their respective industries.
