India’s Pine Labs has announced the appointment of Tanya Naik as the new Head of Omnichannel, according to media reports. Recently, Pine Labs announced the raise of a fresh round of funding from Lone Pine Capital. With this investment, the company is now valued at over $2 billion.
Nitish Asthana, President and COO, Pine Labs, said, “Tanya’s wealth of experience in banking, partnerships and pure-play FinTech will play a critical role in the launch and expansion of our omnichannel business, as this is the way consumers and businesses will buy and sell in the future. At Pine Labs, our leadership in offline merchant space provides us a unique platform to expand our suite of services, particularly when Covid19 has provided a major fillip to consumers’ preferences to shop, discover and buy online and offline in equal measure.”
Naik recently served as the Director – Payments, India, and Cross Border Markets. Prior to that, she was with Citibank India as Vice President, India Solution Sales, Treasury and Trade Solutions, where she worked in transaction banking and handled corporate and institutional banking as well.
