Amit Singh joins PNB Housing Finance as chief people officer

The ICFAI MBA grad brings in 18 years of HR experience to the Company


Amit Singh is the chief people officer at PNB Housing Finance. A decorated human resources professional, Singh carries 18 years of experience.

Having obtained an MBA from ICFAI Mumbai in 2004, Singh joined Blue Star Infotech as a human resources executive, and worked there for almost two years before switching to Tata Consultancy Services in the same position in May 2006.

His stint with TCS was short lived, as he switched to IDFC First Bank in November 2006, as a human resources specialist. He worked his way up the ladder to the position of director & business HR head at IDFC. After a successful decade or so with the Bank, he moved to the role of head-human resources at SBI Mutual Funds, in 2017.

Now, four years later, he is set to don the mantle of chief people officer at PNB Housing Finance.

As a key member of PNB Housing’s leadership team, Singh will play a crucial role in supporting the organisation’s growth and will be responsible for managing manpower strategy for the Company. He will lead the HR function, which includes learning & development, talent acquisition and developing people-centric organisational-development priorities including, talent management and development, coaching, capability building, performance and reward strategy, HR digital strategy and sustaining an inclusive work culture for business growth.

Some of the key areas where he brings extensive experience are talent management, rewards, HR digital ecosystem, capability building, talent acquisition, wellness and engagement.

Excited at the new assignment, Singh says, “I have admired the Company’s rich legacy, core ethics, work commitments, people-centric approach and sustained reputation as one of India’s best-known corporate citizens. I am looking forward to achieving all the defined objectives of the Company with regard to its human resource practices.

Singh will work towards adding “suitable value to the Company’s core operations within this department.”
