As a major accomplishment Patil has incepted, led and launched B2B Trade-Trust products across 50 countries in Asia, Europe and America and was instrumental for developing new India plans for Alibaba.com’s B2B business.

“It is indeed an honour to be a part of the Paytm vision and strategy, both towards national cashless economy, and the plan to take Paytm overseas. I’m thrilled to come on board at one of the fastest scaling payments and commerce platforms in the country and look forward to a mutually successful tenure at Paytm,” said Patil.

Talking about the new appointment, Paytm CEO and founder Vijay Shekhar Sharma said, “We want to offer Indian merchants a compelling commerce platform and Bhushan brings incredible experience of building cross border commerce.
