Aditya Puri

Managing Director, HDFC Bank

Industry Speaker

Mr. Aditya Puri is the Managing Director of HDFC Bank since its inception in 1994. His vision was to create a “World Class Indian Bank”. And, he did. HDFC Bank is one of India’s top banks and a truly World Class Indian Bank for many years now.

During his 25 years at the helm, Mr. Puri has created a culture of excellence in the bank. A great advocate of technology and convenience banking, he is credited with using technology to change the way banking is done in India. Today, the concept of digital is embedded into the DNA of the organization. Mr. Puri has been instrumental in the digital transformation, launching the bank’s ‘Go Digital - Bank Aapki Muthhi Mein’ campaign in December 2014.

From the range of products to their delivery to sheer convenience of banking, HDFC Bank today has made significant strides in the banking space, and was recognized as India’s Most Valuable Brand for five consecutive years from 2014, in a study conducted by Millward Brown, a research agency of the WPP group.

Rural Banking is a mission that is very close to Mr Puri’s heart. Under his guidance, HDFC Bank is empowering millions of people, particularly women, at the Bottom of the Pyramid in rural India through its Sustainable Livelihood Initiative. Through this holistic initiative, the Bank provides access to livelihood finance, occupational training, financial literacy, credit counseling and market linkages to over 96 lakh participants.

HDFC Bank’s branch network is also going deeper into the hinterland, with 53% of all its branches now located in rural and semi-urban areas, offering the entire range of banking products in these markets.

Mr. Puri has been named in the coveted international magazine Barron’s list of ‘World’s 30 Best CEOs’ 2018. He features in the prestigious list for the fourth consecutive year.

He has also been featured in Fortune Businessperson of the year list 2017, an annual ranking of world's top 20 heads of companies. At 18th position, Mr. Puri is the only head of an Indian company on the coveted list.

HDFC Bank has been ranked among top 5 companies that have shaped Asia, and the World by Forbes magazine. In its profile of HDFC Bank, the magazine writes: “Unlike most of the companies on this list, HDFC, India’s largest private sector bank, is largely the vision of one man. Aditya Puri is the Managing Director of HDFC, assuming the position in September 1994, making him the longest-serving head of any private bank in the country and the only head that HDFC has ever had.”

Prior to HDFC Bank, Mr. Puri was Chief Executive of Citi Bank, Malaysia. He was with Citibank NA for almost 20 years where he handled several functions across many countries including India, Greece, Saudi Arabia, Hong Kong, Korea, Taiwan and China.
