Sengupta, Vice-President and General Manager, Payments and Next Billion Users Initiative at Google, has called it a day at the technology giant after 15 years. His last day in office is 30 April 2021. Based out of Singapore, he led the tech giant’s payments plans, including their grand digital payments bet – Google Pay. He was also one of the key people behind the launch and success of Google Pay in India and helped the payment app’s relaunch in the US and Singapore.
“After over 15 wonderful years at Google, I have decided to venture out and start on a new mission. I remain very positive about Google’s future but it’s time for me to see if I can ride without training wheels,” he wrote in a LinkedIn post.
In a thank you note to Google’s Chief Executive Officer Sundar Pichai, he wrote, “I am incredibly grateful to this wonderful company and our leadership, especially Sundar, who took a bet on me, a novice PM (product manager), a decade and a half back, sponsored me, gave me the opportunity to learn, grow, make mistakes and build deep friendships that I will cherish forever.”
Prior to his stint at Google, Sengupta was a Summer Associate (Strategy) with Standard Charted Bank. He earned an MBA from The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania, and an MS in Computer Science from Stanford University.
