Pearl Uppal quits Yahoo! India; set to take the entrepreneurial route

After a stint of over seven years, Pearl Uppal has put in her papers at Yahoo! India, where she was heading all monetising for the company as its Director – Sales. There were no official comments forthcoming at time of filing the report, and it couldn’t be ascertained whether Yahoo! India has already decided on a replacement for Uppal’s role.

It is however understood that Uppal is set to take on the entrepreneurial route, and would be joining an online retail venture as CEO & Co-Founder. The venture is a part of a multinational alliance that is being funded by Indian and European investors.

Sources familiar with the development informed that Uppal had resigned last week, and is at present serving her notice period with the company. Uppal has been a part of Yahoo! ever since the initial stages of the online major in India.

Prior to this, she was working with Rediff and General Electrics.
