WhatsApp Pay India chief Vinay Choletti quits

WhatsApp's India payment business head Vinay Choletti has quit the organisation within four months in the role. Choletti announced his resignation on LinkedIn, which marked the latest in a series of domestic senior-level departures at parent company Meta Platform Inc.

"As I move on to my next adventure, I strongly believe that WhatsApp has the power to phenomenally transform digital payments and financial inclusion in India and I look forward to seeing it leverage its potential in the coming years," Choletti's LinkedIn post late Tuesday read.

In recent times, Meta has seen a spate of changes in executive roles. WhatsApp's India head Abhijit Bose, Meta's public policy director in India Rajiv Aggarwal and Meta's India head Ajit Mohan resigned in November.

Choletti took charge of WhatsApp Pay in India following Manesh Mahatme's exit in September to join Amazon.

Before joining WhatsApp Pay in October 2021 as the head of Merchant Payments, Choletti had worked at Amazon for seven years.

Of late, WhatsApp, the messaging service owned by Meta, has embarked on a drive to rope in more Indians as it tries to scale up in a highly competitive market.
