Ruchi, Neeraj and Naveen all come with tremendous Internet commerce experience with highly renowned brands. We look forward to the strategic contribution they will make towards Paytm’s exciting journey ahead. Their contribution will help in scaling Paytm to become India's most dominant mobile Internet Company. We look to bring global talent and best practices for scaling to half-a-billion Indians on the Paytm platform. I can see our very strong independent board helping us achieve that.”
