The investment bank, JP Morgan Chase & Co., has appointed Madhav Kalyan, its Senior Country Officer in India, as its new Head of Payment for Asia Pacific (APAC).

The executive’s appointment is one of several reshuffles that JP Morgan is completing in its APAC market.

Kalyan, who joined the bank in 2009 and was previously the Chief Executive Officer of JP Morgan Chase Bank in India, is stepping into the shoes of Sridhar Kanthadai.

In turn, Kanthadai, who joined the bank in 2017 from Standard Chartered Bank, has been appointed as the financial services firm's Co-Head of Global Payment Rails and Payment VAS.

Furthermore, JP Morgan said Kaustubh Kulkarni, its Vice Chair for APAC, will take over Kalyan’s role as Senior Country Officer for India. Kulkarni has been with the bank for over 16 years, having joined in April 2006.

Additionally, PD Singh, who has spent over 12 years at JP Morgan serving in India since April 2010, will now act in a double capacity: He will continue in his role as the Head of Corporate Banking in India but also serve as the interim CEO of JP Morgan Chase Bank in India.

Singh joined the investment bank from HSBC where he worked for a decade and served as the Head of Corporate Banking in India.
