When contacted, a BankBazaar spokesperson told VCCircle, “Our former CFO decided to resign in April 2017 after a two-year tenure of growth at BankBazaar. Career prospects and job profiles are dynamic in nature and in any rapidly growing organisation undergo re-calibration. Exits are part of the cyclical changes common to corporate set-ups, and depend on individual aspirations as well.”
