Mahindra & Mahindra Financial Services (M&M Finance) has named Mahesh Rajaraman as the new Chief Risk Officer (CRO), effective August 1, 2024.

In a regulatory filing, M&M Finance detailed that Gaurav Verma, Head Underwriting & Product Policy, will oversee the risk management function on an interim basis until Rajaraman assumes his role.
