The Pak Banker - - COMPANIES/BOSS -

Vi­jay Gopalan has re­signed as chief fi­nan­cial of­fi­cer (CFO) of low-fare air­line AirAsia In­dia, cit­ing per­sonal rea­sons.

Gopalan had joined AirAsia In­dia in Au­gust 2013 and was a part of the start-up team. Prior to AirAsia In­dia, Gopalan worked as fi­nance con­troller of In­dian oper­a­tions of Com­pass Group, as well as man­ager with con­sul­tancy and au­dit firm Ernst and Young.

AirAsia In­dia, pro­moted by Tata Sons Ltd and AirAsia Group Bhd, started its oper­a­tions on 12 June 2014 with an Air­bus A320. In just about a year, the air­line has grown to a fleet of five air­craft with 10 des­ti­na­tions in In­dia, and has hit the one-mil­lion-pas­sen­gers­flown mark a lit­tle while ago.

Mint could not im­me­di­ately con­tact Gopalan for a com­ment. "Our CFO Vi­jay Gopalan has de­cided to re­sign for per­sonal rea­sons. This has been a long con­ver­sa­tion and drawn out de­ci­sion," said Mittu Chandilya, chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer at AirAsia In­dia.
