Soumya Basu made country manager of Visa

Soumya Basu has joined Visa Inc. as Country Manager for Bangladesh.

Soumya will head the operations of the company in Bangladesh, Nepal and Bhutan and sit on Visa’s leadership team in the region, said a press release.

Late last year, Visa announced its plans to establish a country liaison office in Bangladesh. Through this entity, Visa will have a dedicated team of professionals based in Dhaka, now headed by Soumya, and will introduce new services to Bangladeshi consumers, playing a more prominent role in the growth of digital payments across the country.
