Thomson Reuters GC Bijoya Roy joins Walmart’s Flipkart as GC


Previously, General Counsel for global emerging markets with Thomson Reuters, Bijoya Roy has joined Flipkart Bangalore as GC under its new Walmart owners.

Roy takes over from Interim General Counsel Grant Coad, who had flown over to India from Walmart Canada after the US retail giant’s record acquisition of the Indian(ish) unicorn, alongside a bunch of other senior Walmart executives. Roy, a 2002 Symbiosis Law School Pune graduate, will report in to Walmart Asia Senior Vice President, Chief Administrative Officer and its Asia GC.

Roy also has a Post-graduate Diploma in European Competition Law from King’s College, London. She started her career at Tata Housing Development Company, moving to Asian Paints in 2004 and then Kodak Eastmann in 2005.

Roy joined Thomson Reuters London in 2008, moving up the ranks from Senior Legal Counsel EMEA in London to UAE-based Chief Counsel MENA, Sub-Saharan Africa, Russia/CIS and to GC of global emerging markets in 2017.

Roy will be joining Flipkart at a challenging time in Indian e-commerce, especially for foreign-owned companies that have been impacted hard by new, more restrictive FDI rules.
