Payments gateway company Pine Labs Pvt. Ltd has appointed former Vodafone Group Plc CEO Arun Sarin and Visa global head of commercial business Vicky Bindra as members of its board.

Sarin will join the board in an advisory position, the company said in a statement.


Sarin led Vodafone between 2003 and 2008. Most recently, he joined the board of caller ID app Truecaller. He is also on the boards of Ola Cabs, Cisco Systems, Accenture, Charles Schwab & Co and Blackhawk Networks.

Bindra brings with him expertise of the payments industry. Prior to Visa, he headed the Asia Pacific and global accounts at MasterCard Worldwide.
