French digital payments company Ingenico Group has promoted its senior legal counsel, Tushar Tarun, as head of legal in India.
“Considering the dynamic nature of the payments industry, one of my biggest challenges will be to cut the lead time in closing contracts while keeping regulatory risks and disputes at bay,” Tarun told India Business Law Journal.
“My primary role is to assist Ingenico Group in its growth, streamline processes, mitigate risk and manage disputes.”
Tarun said the payments industry is dynamic due to ever-changing guidelines, technology and customer requirements.
The payments industry is also facing an increased risk from online frauds that result in higher pressure from banks and enforcement authorities.
Tarun joined the company in October 2016 and was promoted to senior legal counsel at the French payments company in April 2018. He previously worked as a senior manager at ICICI Bank.
