Fibe, a leading consumer-lending app, previously called EarlySalary, has roped in Monica Mishra as the new head of human resources.
With 18 years of diverse experience backing her, Mishra is a seasoned HR professional who has worked across sectors such as BFSI, healthcare, retail and fashion, with a brief stint in her own startup.
In 2005, she worked with Nicholas Piramal for a year as an HR generalist, before moving to Reliance Retail as talent acquisition and business partner – HR in 2006.
A little over two years later, she moved to Catwalk Worldwide as head – HR for a year.
Her next stop was YES Bank, where she joined as group executive VP – human capital management, for a long and successful tenure of over nine years. It was in 2020 that she founded her own startup.
During her HR journey, she has had ample opportunity to lend strategic support, provide leadership support and counsel to organisations in the areas of workforce planning, recruitment, training and development, performance management, recognition and compensation.
A science graduate, Mishra completed an MBA in human resources and marketing in 2002. She has the ability to thrive in a fast-paced environment, manage competing priorities, communicate efficiently at all levels, and welcome changes to all practices.
In her new assignment, Mishra’s key role will be to envision the brand’s objective of exponential growth in the coming year. Her primary focus will remain onboarding best-in-class talent to scale up the business.
She looks forward to “building on the strong foundation laid by the Fibe team to create a world class, employee-first organisation by hiring talent who will help us in building a lean, automated, and digitally-driven organisation.”
Fibe operates across multiple domains and is now moving forward to let in new talent across its tech, data science and analytics teams.

Welcoming Mishra to the “Fibe tribe”, Akshay Mehrotra, CEO & co-founder, Fibe, says, “We are looking to hire innovative minds to further bolster our consistent growth. This potential talent will further help us innovate, solve and create a competitive advantage for us in the lending industry.”
