Classplus raised $70 million in a Series D investment led by Tiger Global and Alpha Wave Global just a week ago. Sood, who formerly served as the chief revenue officer for OYO APAC, will oversee Classplus’ international expansion.

Sood, a seasoned startup expert, has previously led numerous business verticals across different locations at fast growth firms such as OYO and Zomato throughout a 15-year career. He graduated from IIM Calcutta and was a member of the founding team at Shiprocket, where he was also named CFO.

According to the company statement, the international expansion team managed by Sood is currently hiring and has more than 50 available roles ranging from entry to senior levels in marketing, product, and business development.
