Ex-COO Dhruv Dhanraj Bahl latest to exit BharatPe

Former chief operating officer (COO) of BharatPe Dhruv Dhanraj Bahl who was recently redesignated as the chief business officer of the merchant lending division of BharatPe is exiting the company in September, as per sources.

Merchant lending has been one of the biggest revenue drivers and most important vertical for the company. In May, BharatPe also announced the acquisition of a majority stake in Mumbai-based non-banking financial company (NBFC) Trillion Loans with an aim to boost its lending business.

The company claims to be facilitating loans of over Rs 500 crore every month to its merchant partners.

Bahl’s exit is followed by a slew of senior level exits that the fin-tech witnessed in the last year and a half.

Bahl played a crucial role in the restructuring of the organisation post the exit of Grover. He had joined the company in 2020 as the head of operations Before joining BharatPe, he worked across organizations such as Airtel Payments Bank, Paytm Bank and Fortis Healthcare.

Bahl is likely to set up an early stage investment firm thus joining the league of his former colleagues Suhail Sameer and Bhavik Koladiya, one of the sources quoted above said requesting anonymity. However he declined to divulge further details.

BharatPe and Bahl didn’t immediately respond to the query.
