Paytm Money Poised for Leadership Shift as Varun Sridhar Steps Down, Rakesh Singh named as New CEO

Varun Sridhar

Paytm Money, the wealth management arm of One97 Communications, named Rakesh Singh, a seasoned banking professional and former CEO of Fisdom’s broking division, as the new Chief Executive Officer (CEO), after Varun Sridhar stepped down from the post.

The transition, however, awaits formal approval from the board, with a meeting expected within the coming week to finalise Singh’s appointment. While Sridhar’s departure marks the end of a successful four-year tenure, discussions are reportedly underway to leverage his expertise within other divisions of the Paytm ecosystem, possibly in Paytm insurance or the core payments sector.

Rakesh Singh brings over 18 years of extensive banking experience to the role, having spent over five years at Fisdom, a prominent player in the wealth management sphere. His appointment signals a strategic move by Paytm Money to further strengthen its position in the market amidst recent regulatory challenges.
