Bandhan Bank announced that Ratan Kumar Kesh, its current Executive Director & Chief Operating Officer, will take over as the bank's interim Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer (MD & CEO) effective July 10th, 2024.

A seasoned banking professional with nearly 30 years of experience, Kesh has held leadership roles in various domains across the industry, including technology, operations, and customer experience. Prior to joining Bandhan Bank in March 2023, he worked with leading institutions like ICICI Bank, HDFC Bank, Yes Bank, and Axis Bank.
