Clear, leading fintech SaaS firm, has roped in Saran Chatterjee, former product leader at GooglePay and Flipkart, as its new Chief Product Officer. In his new role, Saran will spearhead product management, design, and product marketing for Clear.

Saran comes with over two decades of experience in product management, product marketing, product innovation, business management, and operations in India and Silicon Valley. Prior to Clear, Saran was the Director of Product Management at Google, heading the consumer payments and financial services for GooglePay India. He has also worked at Flipkart, Yahoo, and Fujitsu, and co-founded home construction and services startup HouseJoy.

Archit Gupta, Founder and CEO of Clear, said, “Saran brings with him deep experience of building products for the global market. His experience will help us in our mission to expand internationally, building fintech, payments and SaaS products that simplify compliance for businesses. We will create unprecedented value for the entire ecosystem of businesses as we grow Clear at a global scale.”

“Clear has established itself as a product leader in the taxation and compliance space in India. I am quite excited to join the stellar team of Clear to now build category-defining products across payment, credit, and other areas that simplify the financial lives of businesses and individuals across the globe,” said Saran.

Clear’s popular products include Clear GST, Clear e-Invoicing, Black app and MaxITC. Clear has recently expanded to Saudi Arabia with its e-invoicing product. It also introduced new software for B2B payments and credit like Clear Invoice Discounting.

The company envisions building India’s largest B2B Business Network that connects Clear’s customers with their business partners – vendors, customers, distributors, accountants – on a single platform. Through this network, Clear will solve for use cases across procurement, invoicing, payments, and collections. It will also build a crypto tax and portfolio management platform for individuals and businesses.
