Airtel Payments Bank has appointed Anubrata Biswas as their MD and CEO.
Biswas joins from ICICI Bank where he was heading Retail Business for the South Market. He joined ICICI Bank in 2005 and after working for more than 12 years he has moved to Airtel Payments Bank.
A statement from Airtel said that Biswas will be responsible for driving the bank’s mission of taking convenient and innovative digital banking services to the doorstep of every Indian.
In the statement, Sunil Bharti Mittal, Chairman, Bharti Airtel said that he is delighted to have Anubrata on board and he is confident that Anubrata’s experience will add value to the bank’s agenda of financial inclusion and digital leadership.
Anubrata’s appointment comes in after the previous CEO of Airtel Payments bank Shashi Arora stepped down in December last year over his controversial involvement in opening bank accounts without consent and approvals of customers.
