Hospitality start-up major firm has appointed much-known sportswoman and Paralympian as an independent director on its company’s board.

According to Oravel Stays (OYO), the appointment of Deepa Malik, an Indian athlete and a silver-medalist at the 2016 , as an independent director on the company’s board of directors was cleared by the top company management as of September 26, 2021.

“We are delighted to welcome Malik to OYO’s board of directors. We have been working on making our company and the board more inclusive over the last couple of years. Malik’s experience and her passion for travel and adventure would be invaluable for OYO for years to come,” OYO Founder and Chairman, Ritesh Agarwal said.

She is not just an inspiration to a whole generation of Indians but also embodies the spirit of thriving in the face of adversity, a mindset which a company like OYO has to make an integral part of its thinking, Agarwal said.
