Ajay Banga? Who?
Well, we’ve all seen multiple posts around Indians taking over the world, global CEO’s increasingly being of Indian origin. Ajay Banga is one of them. He is the CEO of Mastercard.
Ajay Banga had a truly high flying career with Citibank when he took the decision to join MasterCard and ultimately ending up as CEO. This reminds me of how Aditya Puri took a similar decision when he decided to build HDFC Bank in India back in ’94.
This 49 minute video gives an interesting perspective on Ajay Banga’s career.
Fun anecdote from the video –
Is cash free?
“If you thought cash is free, think again. The drugs that you bought for that house party was paid for in cash. Cash is often accompanied by a security personnel who carries it till it reaches the ATM and there is someone who would be loading it into the teller machine. Think again, cash is not free and it is sure as hell not cheap.”
