Paytm’s assistant vice president Ankit Gera had also resigned from the company.
According to three Entrackr sources, Gera has moved from the company last month. His LinkedIn profile also mentioned that he was with Paytm till the beginning of September. Gera was leading the growth and product for the Noida-based company.
He was solely responsible for driving user growth. He had worked for over 55 months at Paytm.
Before leading user growth and product, Gera had also headed Paytm’s payment gateway business for a year. Entrackr couldn’t ascertain who has taken over Gera’s role at Paytm.
While it’s not clear which reasons led to the departure of Gera, Abbot and Misra, sources emphasised that maturity of ESOPs and high-pressure situation have been the primary factors for resignations.
