We’re glad to announce Varun Dudeja as the new Head of Business Development for Asia at Pismo.
With more than 13 years of experience in Asia’s banking and payments industry, he was the former Regional Head of Business Development at MatchMove Pay. He is now joining Pismo to strengthen our market position and regional expansion.
“Markets across the Asia-Pacific have seen high growth rates in the digital payments space in the last couple of years,” says Dudeja. “People and businesses are willing to try and adopt digital payments. Pismo’s modular technology solution can support the entire payments value chain, from issuers to acquirers, and I am excited to be part of this journey.”
Our regional operations in Asia were officially launched in April when we opened an office in Singapore and announced our partnership with OneConnect, a leading technology-as-a-service (TaaS) provider and an associate of Ping An Group. The goal is for the HQ in Singapore to become the hub for all of Pismo’s product support in Southeast Asia.
“The APAC region is synonymous with innovation and forward-thinking financial institutions, and thus we are very pleased to have Varun Dudeja leading our business development in the region,” says Vishal Dalal, Pismo’s CEO for North America, Europe, and Asia.
Pismo is growing fast and expanding globally. The firm grew from about 40 employees at the beginning of 2021 to almost 400 this month. It was founded in Brazil and now has teams based in the USA, Mexico, the UK, India, Singapore, and Australia. Our corporate culture emphasizes innovation, state-of-the-art technologies, low-friction relationships, and diversity.
