  • Late 90s and 2000s were the years when Indian banking was experiencing a sea change. While foreign lenders like Citibank had introduced 24/7 banking by rolling out automatic teller machines (ATMs) with the tag line `Citi Never Sleeps', Indian origin private banks were catching up on the pace to change retail banking through credit cards and corporate accounts. Many management executives, team or project leads, back then in the banking industry, were transforming drawing board concepts into reality. Having worked in an environment that had the challenges of a startup but the backing of large established brands, these executives took a leap of faith to step into an exciting, though more uncertain, world. Having started his banking career in 1991 with ANZ Grindlays Bank, Krishnan Vaidyanathan is one of those few bankers who had the opportunity to work on Information Technology when digital world was in its infancy in India.
