Achiever's Success Story
Nurturing talent with opportunities
Priyank Kothari is the Director of Operations at Arvog Finance, a modern smart-tech-enabled diversified finance and venture growth investment company that has been attributed with lending simple yet pertinent Finance and Leisure products and services. With INR 200 crores disbursed, 85 thousand cases, a CAGR of 202% over the last two years and having picked up stake in Nemo, Ariv Education, Dhruva Space and more, Priyank who is still in his mid-20s has been leading Arvog with much dedication.
Priyank has played a key role in transforming a legacy NBFC into a tech-based company. Youth to him being no limitation, rather an advantage, he brings a start-up like mindset to disrupt the status quo.
His confidence stems from having started two additional services at Nefab, a global packaging and logistics services provider, merely as an intern in March 2019. His keenness for technology is reflected in the initiative he showed in learning how to code, before he joined Arvog in November 2019. Ever since he has joined the company, he has been a guiding force behind Arvog launching four new products in Arvog’s Porfolio including gold loans, micro loans followed by payday and school fee loans which are eyeing double-digit growth numbers every quarter. At Arvog, he has also launched a hybrid model that linked the company to institutes and agents and under his direction, Arvog took up venture funding. He has been credited to mobilise support for rapidly building a lending system within the company as well as incorporating technology-driven operations within its structure.
His professional journey has been full of challenges and experiments. His first job at Arvog was as a credit underwriter. The only advantage that he had over the task was his knack for risk analysis. And, he exploited it not only as a credit underwriter but also as someone who envisioned a leadership role within the company. Soon after, he floated his vision for Arvog as a fintech platform for partnerships and venture funding in order to grow their coverage. Following success in bringing a few partnerships like Payme India, Finance peer & Neev, on board, he was handed the responsibility of leading operations and since then there was no looking back. His enthusiasm for Arvog’s growth is boundless. The company is his sole focus at the moment, despite his passion for sports.
Today, Priyank is singularly focused on building small wins by being the sort of organisation that truly nurtures talent and opportunities. With a work philosophy to learn to deliver from everyone around him, he aims to expand Arvog as well as deepen its reach across various customer segments while retaining their focus on micro and gold loans.
