Tuesday April 16, 2024 , 2 min Read

Fintech unicorn BharatPe has elevated interim chief Nalin Negi as the CEO of the company, while it looks for a new CFO.

As interim CEO and CFO, Negi showed substantial growth and advancements across key business segments, said the company in a statement.

Under Negi, BharatPe recorded an increase in revenue from operations of 182% in FY23 and clocked October 2023 as the first EBITDA positive month, it added.

"I am excited and honoured to take on this new role at BharatPe. Going forward, our strategic focus will be on sustained profitability, scaling lending businesses, and launching new merchant-centric products," said Negi.

"We look forward to supporting Nalin Negi in his new role and are grateful for his tremendous contribution as the interim CEO. His extensive experience in the fintech industry and the growth witnessed for BharatPe under his leadership, makes him a natural choice to lead the company," said Rajnish Kumar, Chairman of the Board, BharatPe.

Prior to joining BharatPe, Negi held senior leadership positions at financial services organisations including SBI Cards and GE Capital. Negi spent over a decade as CFO of SBI Cards, guiding the credit card major to its IPO in March 2020.

In August 20222, he was appointed the CFO of BharatPe, replacing professional services firm Alvarez & Marsal, which was made the interim CFO following the departures of Nishit Sharma, ex-chief revenue officer, and Chandrima Dhar, who was the head of institutional debt at BharatPe.

In January 2023, following the exit of CEO Suhail Sameer, Negi was appointed the interim CEO of BharatPe.
