Paytm, the digital payments and e-commerce company, has appointed Vikas Purohit in a leadership role for its payments bank business which is waiting for approval from the Reserve Bank of India. Purohit will join Paytm as a senior vice-president.

This includes a stint as Head of Business Operations at Tommy Hilfiger (2006-08), followed by 2 years as Head of Retail at Reliance Brands and then another 2 years as COO of Planet Retail. In June 2012 he joined Amazon as Category Leader and GM Apparel and was promoted to Director Fashion in 2015. He left Amazon in Oct. 2015.

For its payments bank rollout, the Noida-based Paytm is reported to be in the process of recruiting 3,000 people. They have reportedly hired consultants Ernst & Young and Mckinsey to help in the hiring process.
