"Chandnani's broad and diverse background compliments his general management experiences and makes him uniquely qualified for his new role. I am pleased that Obopay has someone of his caliber in this leadership position," said Realini. "As Chandnani assumes this new role, we are looking at a dynamic future as we process transactions on three continents, and continue to position ourselves to take advantage of the appetite of consumers for mobile money solutions. Chandnani will play a key role in increasing operational excellence and I am glad that we have his rich experience to complement our growth objective."

Prior to joining Obopay, Chandnani was the CEO of Wire and Wireless in India and before that served as the Managing Director for NCR in India. Earlier assignments included roles with Yahoo, where he established Yahoo's first office in India, and at Citibank, where he played key roles as y roles as Marketing Director for India and Business Head of the innovative Citibank Suvidha liability business in India, HLL, and included an entrepreneurial stint that provided Chandnani with key insights into the challenges and opportunities of small, emerging growth companies.

An Economics honors graduate from St Stephens College, Delhi, Chandnani holds a MBA from the Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad (IIM- A).

"Obopay is the global leader in the mobile payments space with a robust platform, strengthened by its focus on developing successful partnerships and on meeting consumer needs and expectations," said Chandnani. "I look forward to meeting the exciting task of building on Obopay's market leadership through accelerated growth worldwide, working with an excellent team to take advantage of the huge opportunity in the mobile payments space and meeting the needs of our partners and customers."
