Gigs Welcomes Former Stripe Executive Rishi Sachdeva as New Head of Fintech


“Gigs Appoints Rishi Sachdeva as Head of Fintech”

San Francisco-based Telecom-as-a-Service (TaaS) platform, Gigs, has appointed Rishi Sachdeva as its new head of fintech.

In his new capacity, Sachdeva will lead the fintech strategy and expansion efforts at Gigs, with a specific focus on overseeing key partnerships. He takes over the role from Rafael Plantier, who transitions to the position of head of go-to-market at Gigs.

Hermann Frank, co-founder and CEO of Gigs, expresses confidence in Sachdeva’s capabilities, noting his extensive knowledge and networks. Frank believes Sachdeva’s expertise will enable Gigs to capitalize on the growing interest among fintech companies seeking to integrate its solution.

Prior to joining Gigs, Sachdeva held prominent positions at fintech heavyweight Stripe, where he served as head of GTM partnerships and business development for six years. He also held key roles as head of developer partnerships and platform product at Betable.

Established in 2020, Gigs offers financial institutions the ability to provide mobile and data plans alongside credit or debit cards, positioning itself as the world’s first TaaS platform.

Sachdeva’s appointment contributes to the ongoing expansion of Gigs’ leadership team this year, following the appointment of Steven van Bommel as head of finance in January.
