SINGAPORE - Visa has a new country manager for Singapore and Brunei, after the previous executive in that role jumped ship for ride-hailing company Grab.

Kunal Chatterjee has been appointed to the vacant post, Visa said in a statement on Tuesday (April 10).

The 10-year Visa veteran was most recently vice-president of global client management, heading the Citibank account team.

He also previously spent three-and-a-half years on the country team as head of business development for Singapore and Brunei.

Mandy Lamb, group country manager for South-east Asia, said in a statement: "With proven management and leadership skills and a strong understanding of the Singapore business, I am confident he will enable us to continue to drive the expansion of electronic payments and help to achieve the country's Smart Nation objectives."

Mr Chatterjee's predecessor, Ooi Huey Tyng, left Visa in late 2017 and is now GrabPay's managing director in Singapore, Malaysia and the Philippines.
