One of India’s fastest-growing FinTechs, Lendingkart focuses on the credit product ecosystem for MSMEs pan India. The group aims to make working capital finance available at the fingertips of entrepreneurs so that they can focus on business instead of worrying about the gaps in their cash flows.

Purple Quarter has been a great partner in locating tech leadership talent for our organisation on various occasions. We appreciate the team’s driven efforts and meticulous search process.”

Purple Quarter understands Lendingkart’s long-term vision and accordingly devised a strategic approach to find the best fitment. It was imperative that the leader had deep-set knowledge and relevant industry expertise. Manik Dham proved to be the best fit for the leadership mandate. With over 12 years of experience building high-performing teams, platforms and successful global partnerships, Manik has been associated with Rupeek, Quinbay Technologies and Ness Technologies among others. At Lendingkart EDG, he will be responsible for enhancing and scaling the Lendingkart platform’s technology capabilities.

I am excited to take this on and work together as a part of the larger Lendingkart team. Purple Quarter’s support and guidance along the way have been unmatched,” shared Manik Dham on his appointment.

“In my 2 decades of experience, I have collaborated with many search firms. What stood out to me when it came to Purple Quarter is their investment in understanding the need of the organisation before jumping to providing a funnel of candidates. Their process is time-tested, to the point and action-oriented with many layers of calibration which made the process a lot more efficient and enriching. I look forward to partnering with the team in the future too,” shared Pushpa Latha Sreenivasan, Head of Talent, Lendingkart.
