BharatPe has appointed Sumeet Singh as General Counsel and Head- Corporate Strategy.

Sumeet brings deep understanding of legal, compliance, regulatory and structuring aspects of multiple sectors including non-banking financial, retail, e-commerce, FMCG, digital media and technology.


Singh is currently a Partner at Shardul Amarchand Mangaldas, New Delhi, having joined the erstwhile Amarchand Mangaldas Suresh A. Shroff in 2013 from AZB.


Ashneer Grover, Co-Founder and CEO, BharatPe said, "2020 has been an exciting and solid growth year for BharatPe. As we get ready to welcome 2021, I would like to welcome Sumeet to the team. Sumeet will be the first partner at a major law firm to join a startup. I've known Sumeet professionally and personally for 5 years and there is no one better to steer BharatPe on its goal to be India's first true digital bank. He will be responsible for corporate strategy, compliance, licensing, equity and debt deals, ESOP schemes, cap table management and preparation for eventual listing."


Singh stated "I am excited to join Ashneer and his solid team of CXOs as they build out a truly differentiated and capital efficient Fintech at BharatPe. The way BharatPe has broken away from the Fintech crowd to create a solid business, bodes well for the future and I am honoured to contribute to this amazing growth."
