PayU rejigs top deck, appoints new leaders
The Naspers-owned digital payments company PayU, which is undergoing a major leadership transition, has announced five additions to its senior management team. The new leaders will help bolster the company's growth and ensure it continues to respond to the fast-changing needs of merchants and consumers.
Noopur Chaturvedi, who previously led Airtel Payments Bank’s corporate business and alliances has been appointed as the Country Head of the small and medium business.
Alim Khan has been brought on-board as Senior Vice President of compulsive business. Prior to PayU, he was working with Billdesk, an online payments solutions company, where he managed the government business practice.
Ashish Chattoraj has been roped in as HR Head of PayU India to establish and implement plans for acquiring and retaining talent apart from managing performance. Having worked across Hi-Tech/IT Services and manufacturing industries, Ashutosh brings 15-plus years of distinguished experience to the position. Additionally, Priya Cherian will take over as the new Global HR Head for credit business, responsible for aligning PayU’s growth strategy with its credit business.
The ex-ICICI Bank executive, Ashish Pathak, has been named as Head of legal and compliance.
“The company will leverage the experience and expertise of these leaders to further upscale its business and continue to innovate products and services based on advanced technology,” PayU said in a statement.
Two of the company’s Managing Directors, Shailaz Nag and Jitendra Gupta, quit in July. Also, Anirban Mukherjee took charge as CEO of its Indian entity in February.
PayU, which aims to create a “full regional fintech ecosystem through innovations focused on payments, credit, and fintech investments” in India has been significantly reshaping its leadership team to steer the organization into that next phase of growth.
