<p>Following the resignation of founding director Uday Kotak as the bank’s CEO on September 1, 2023, he succeeded Dipak Gupta as temporary MD and CEO.</p>
<p>As of January 1, 2024, Ashok Vaswani will serve as the Bank’s CEO and Managing Director, according to a regulatory filing by Kotak Mahindra Bank.</p>
<p>For a three-year term, starting in October 2023, Vaswani will serve as the bank’s MD and CEO, after approval by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI).</p>
<p>He graduated from Sydenham College of Commerce and Economics, much like Uday Kotak. Vaswani is also a certified company secretary and chartered accountant.</p>
<p>Vaswani has just been employed by Barclays. Before this, Vaswani held the position of President of the US-Israeli AI Fintech company Pagaya Technologies Ltd.</p>
<p>His track record spans three and a half decades, having first gained experience at Citigroup and most recently at Barclays.</p>

<p>Prakash Apte’s tenure as board chairman ended on December 31, 2023, and Rajan was appointed as the board’s part-time chairman in his place.</p>
