Currently, boAt has nearly 250 members across its team in Delhi, Mumbai, and Bengaluru.
Before boAt, Kamal worked in companies like Nokia, Microsoft, and Flextronics at a global level.
Singh comes with over 14 years of corporate experience in companies like Unilever, Kimberly Clark, and Asian Paints.
Sharma will lead the company’s financial functions as an Ernst & Young scholarship holder and industry expert.
Launched in 2016, boAt is the first digitally-native Indian brand to cross Rs 700 crore in net revenues within five years. It is now looking to expand its product portfolio in India.
In January this year, boAt raised approximately $100 million (over Rs 731 crore) from an affiliate of Warburg Pincus, a leading global private equity fund, towards ramping up manufacturing and go global.
After disrupting the earwear and wearable category, boAt has now forayed into personal grooming with MISFIT and launched their line of Gaming headphones called “Immortal”.
