Under his leadership, the bank embarked on transformation journey to emerge as a re-energized, re-capitalized and recalibrated organization, while continuing to fulfil its unwavering commitment towards its customers and stakeholders, the bank said.

Prior to joining Yes Bank, Kumar was Deputy Managing Director & CFO of India's largest bank SBI, where he served in various capacities.
