Organisation: Former Country Business Manager, Consumer Banking, CitiBank India (IN)

In retrospect, it all adds up. But this was not the plan when I joined the Reserve bank of India in 1990 with an unusual background in English Literature and journalism. In my seventeen years at the central bank, I handled diverse portfolios and took a sabbatical to acquire M.A. in Public Policy at the UT-Austin, Texas, USA (1999-2001). I left RBI in 2007 to join Bank of America Merrill Lynch as Country Compliance Officer (2007-2010) and then moved on to PricewaterhouseCoopers as Director/partner-Banking and Capital Markets (2010-16). I headed Paytm Payments Bank briefly before accepting the position of Country Business Manager for Citibank’s Consumer Bank in India in 2017. I have just retired from Citi to set up my Startup in the space of women, money and choices.
