Person Details

Update

A business visionary, Aayush Phumbhra is now leading Chegg through the rental textbook market as a co-founder. Inspired by his personal experience and frustration with his own university's bookstore, Aayush believes in the vision of Chegg: help college students save money by providing them with the option to rent rather than simply buy the textbooks. Prior to the founding of Chegg, Aayush was an analyst at Wells Fargo Home Mortgage and a management and technology consultant at BearingPoint. Before he moved to the United States in 2001, Aayush launched two companies in his native India, one of which focused on Web and graphic design.

As a VP, Aayush drives Chegg's growth, spreading the service to more and more college campuses and leading in the development of strategic business relationships.

Aayush holds an MBA in Marketing and Accounting from Iowa State University and currently lives in Chicago, commuting to the northern California hub of Chegg frequently.
