Sanjay Swamy, mChek CEO has decided to hang his boots for a while and has decided to take a break from corporate life.
I’ve had great support from all of you over the past 4 years of building mChek from nothing to a fairly well known and growing company – all of you have given me a lot of encouragement and personal support and have been rooting to make mChek successful. We’ve won a ton of awards – Global awards at GSMA, TiE awards, Red herring awards, etc.
After all these days of breathtaking excitement, I’ve decided to hang up my boots for a while and am taking a break from the corporate world – beginning tomorrow i no longer will be employed by mChek and I will be a free bird. – Email from Sanjay.
Sanjay and I go a long way – I worked with him @ Ketera, a KPCB funded startup and have been in constant touch with him during his mChek days.
Apart from being a great marketeer, Sanjay also proved his mettle by taking mChek to such a great level. Be it about the PR skills (look at their international coverage, how many Indian companies can boast of the same?) or about taking strategic decisions with operators (the underdogs?), Sanjay has taken the company to a new level (and in a way, helped define the mobile payment economy).
The company now needs somebody who can operationalize the entire growth story and take the company to next level.
What next with mChek? We will update the post with details on Sanjay’s replacement.
