IAMAI appoints FreeCharge’s Kunal Shah as chairman

kunal-shah-freechargeThe Internet and Mobile Association of India (IAMAI) has named Kunal Shah, co-founder and CEO of  FreeCharge as the new chairman of IAMAI. The move comes following Nishant Rao’s move to join Freshdesk as the global chief operating officer, from Linkedin.

In addition, IAMAI also announced Vishwas Patel, CEO of payment gateway  CCAvenue as the new treasurer.

In April 2015, FreeCharge was acquired by Snapdeal for a reported value of $450 million. Post acquisition, FreeCharge continues to be an independent entity under Shah’s leadership.

Patel, the founder and CEO of Avenues India Private Limited, launched the company’s first initiative, CCAvenue in September 2001. CCAvenue provides payment gateway services to thousands of eMerchants.

Earlier this month, IAMAI, in its submission to TRAI’s consultation paper, has said differential pricing for data usage for accessing different websites, applications and platforms by telecom operators should not be allowed as it violates the principles of Net Neutrality.
