IAMAI names Kunal Shah as Chairman

The Internet and Mobile Association of India (IAMAI) has named Kunal Shah, Co-founder and CEO of FreeCharge, as the new Chairman of IAMAI. The move was necessitated following Nishant Rao’s move to join Freshdesk as the global COO from Linkedin.

IAMAI has also appointed Vishwas Patel, CEO of CCAvenue, as the new treasurer. Vinodh Bhat, Co-founder, President & Chief Strategy Officer at Saavn, remains the Vice-Chairman of the Association.

Kunal Shah co-founded FreeCharge in August 2010 with the aim to build a business that turned recharges in to rewarding experiences for its consumers. In April 2015, FreeCharge was acquired by Snapdeal. Post acquisition, FreeCharge continues to be an independent entity under Kunal’s leadership.

As the Founder and CEO of Avenues India, Vishwas has guided the company to become South Asia's No. 1 e-commerce service provider. The company's first initiative, CCAvenue was launched in September 2001 and it today provides payment gateway services to thousands of e-merchants across the world.
