Vistara’s CIO Ravinder Pal Singh Resigns

This would be a second top-level exit in the airline in a little over a year. In December 2019, its then Chief strategy and commercial officer Sanjiv Kapoor had resigned from the airline.

The Tata Group and Singapore Airlines promoted Vistara sees a top-level exit with its Chief Information and Innovation Officer Ravinder Pal Singh resigning from the airline. He will be leaving the organization tomorrow, 15th January 2021.

This would be a second top-level exit in the airline in a little over a year. In December 2019, its then Chief strategy and commercial officer Sanjiv Kapoor had resigned from the airline. Kapoor was replaced by Vinod Kannan, who took responsibilities of key revenue functions of the airline during a period when COVID impacted and continued to impact airline companies across the globe.

While the airline has not announced Singh’s replacement yet, airline executives said that Singh has been instrumental in all the key technical endeavors of the airline, thus, providing an edge over its peers.

In an email to employees, Singh talked about the message from Vistara’s founding CEO Phee Teik Yeoh and hoped that the airline will continue to work with the same vision under the current CEO.

“We are a beautiful airline but not a perfect organization, not yet! and I am sure all of you will strive to make Vistara Great, really-really Great Institution,” Singh’s mail to the employees read.

“Few years back, on his last working day, an emotional Founding CEO (and my dear friend) told me that “… Ravi as founding CIO you need to ensure that Vistara’s technology and innovation thoughtfulness creates a rich legacy which will be difficult if not possible to match in the near future..” I am certain that the current CEO and my successor will fulfill that vision and its hunger with unmatched zeal and excellence,” the email read.
