Notably, Jatin has been named Asia's Greatest Chief Financial Officer (CFO) by a leading publication. In his new role at theAsianparent, Jatin will implement and drive new strategic, commercial and tech initiatives to propel the business towards US$100 million revenue within the next few years, which includes financial improvements, transformation and implementation of various technology and product related strategies for the company.

"Having founded and led start-ups, the tech start-up space is familiar ground where I have gained and learnt from. I am thrilled to be part of a team as driven as theAsianparent's and look forward to contributing to the growth of the business," said Jatin about joining theAsianparent.
