I would like to congratulate Deepak Chandnani for his promotion to Chairman for India and South Asia and look forward to his continued support and guidance to enhance the business in the region. My congratulations also go to Ramesh Narasimhan on his appointment as CEO of India. He will help in driving our business in India to the next level of success.”

At the same time I am extremely pleased to welcome Ramesh as the new CEO of the India business. His experience of over three decades in Information Technology, and vast understanding of the payments landscape has been instrumental in creating value and trust for our partners. I believe Worldline in India will continue to outshine in all business verticals under Ramesh’s leadership.”
