As Revolut gears up for its highly anticipated launch in India, the UK-based financial super-app is fortifying its leadership with strategic appointments, including Girish Singh as the Head of Growth. This move is part of Revolut’s broader strategy to penetrate one of the world’s most promising financial markets. Girish joined Revolut in April 2023 and has since been pivotal in orchestrating data-driven marketing campaigns, significantly boosting the waitlist to over 150,000 potential customers—doubling the number from the previous year.

This enthusiasm is mirrored by recent regulatory advancements that further position Revolut as a major player in the Indian financial sector. The global neobank has recently received in-principle approval from the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) to issue Prepaid Payment Instruments (PPI), such as prepaid cards and wallets. This complements their existing authorization as an Authorised Dealer Category II (ADII), which includes permissions for issuing multi-currency forex cards and facilitating cross-border remittances. This dual capability allows Revolut to offer a comprehensive suite of international and domestic payment solutions through a unified platform, making it one of the 17 entities to secure this sought-after authorisation.

Prior to joining Revolut, Girish significantly impacted Uber’s enterprise business in Asia as the Head of Marketing & Growth, APAC. His leadership in this role was marked by strategic partnerships and innovative marketing strategies that broadened Uber’s corporate footprint across the region.

Girish’s extensive background also includes transformative roles at American Express and Metropolis Healthcare, where he led significant digital and marketing initiatives that markedly enhanced customer engagement and expanded market reach. His entrepreneurial spirit was also evident as he co-founded CaterWow, India’s first bulk food ordering platform, setting industry benchmarks for how technology can transform traditional businesses.

Revolut’s strategic positioning in India is further strengthened by the appointment of Amarjeet Kumar as Head of Strategy and Operations. Together with Girish, they form a formidable team that aims to revolutionize the Indian financial landscape.

Paroma Chatterjee, CEO of Revolut India, noted the importance of these appointments, stating that their “extensive industry experience and expertise will play a crucial role in driving success for Revolut in India.” As Revolut continues to expand its team and capabilities in India, the fintech community watches eagerly, anticipating how its innovative solutions will transform everyday financial transactions for millions of Indians.
