BYJU'S, the world's leading education technology company, today announced Arjun Mohan taking charge as the CEO of India operations. He succeeds Mrinal Mohit, founding partner and the outgoing head of India business at BYJU’S, who is embarking on a new journey to pursue personal aspirations.
Arjun Mohan, who was a part of the founding team and last served as the Chief Business Officer, re-joined the company recently. He spent the last three months working closely with the founder and Group CEO Byju Raveendran. Arjun spearheaded UpGrad while away from BYJU’S.
Reflecting on Mrinal's contributions, Byju Raveendran stated, “If BYJU'S has reached the remarkable heights it stands at today, it is due to the extraordinary efforts of our founding team. Mrinal's contributions have left an indelible mark on our organization, and we bid him a bittersweet farewell. I am immensely proud of what we have achieved together.”
Welcoming Arjun Mohan back into the company fold, Raveendran added: “Arjun's return is a testament to his belief in our mission and the unparalleled opportunities that lie ahead. His expertise will undoubtedly help our turnaround efforts and strengthen our position in the global EdTech landscape."
Speaking about his departure from BYJU’S, Mrinal Mohit said, “Being part of the founding team at BYJU'S has been an incredible journey, and I am grateful for the opportunity to have contributed to the transformation of education. As I embark on a new chapter in my career, I leave BYJU’S in capable hands and carry with me the pride of what we have achieved as a team.”
The new India CEO Arjun Mohan said Byju Raveendran’s dedication to education and his innovative teaching methods ignited a lifelong passion for learning within him. "It was no surprise that I joined him to revolutionize education more than a decade ago. And it is no surprise either that I return to BYJU’S today, when technology is poised to play an even more important role in making education truly personalised. While challenges are aplenty, I am ready to play my role in helping BYJU’S empower our current and future generations to thrive in a rapidly changing world,” he added.
As BYJU'S bids farewell to Mrinal Mohit and welcomes back Arjun Mohan through a well-defined transition plan, the organization remains committed to sustainable expansion amidst transformational changes for an exciting new phase.
