Vistaar appoints ex-Sebi chief C B Bhave as non-exec Chairman


Vistaar Financial Services, an MSME-focused financing firm, today said it has appointed former Sebi chief C B Bhave as non-executive Chairman and Independent Director.

Bhave was the Chairman of Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) for a period of three years during 2008-11, prior to which he was the Chairman and Managing Director of National Securities Depositories Ltd (NSDL).
