Udit Jain has quit the Airtel Payments Bank (APB) where he served as the Vice President & Head of Marketing for a period of five years and nine months.
“It’s a wrap up! After an exhilarating 5 years and 9 months, I am moving on from Airtel. Time has literally flown. I joined at the time when the third telecom war just started. Next 3 years were with lots of pressure cooker situations, heartbreaks and ultimately wins. Market was changing: Industry consolidation, category shift to bundles & advent of OTT. The shifts were massive and very fast and we delivered and delivered in style. Not only we survived, but now are a dominant player. I still remember our CEO saying “We are a 70,000 cr startup”. Airtel embodies every bit of it in thinking , spirit & action,” Jain said in a LinkedIn post.
“Next 2.5 years at Airtel Payments bank were even better. A fintech backed by a business house growing by a whopping 60% year on year. While other players struggled, we delivered hyper growth with profits. A start-up within a startup (Airtel) the speed was just massive,” he added.
