Sonia Dhawan Joins Sheroes
Dhawan, a former Paytm executive will join Sheroes as the Director of Corporate Communications
Sonia Dhawan, a former Paytm executive and prime accused in an extortion case involving company founder Vijay Shekhar Sharma, has joined Sheroes. She will be the director of corporate communications at the social network for women in which Sharma is also a stakeholder. The case against Dhawan, who has denied any attempts at blackmail, is still ongoing in court. Separately, regulatory filings show that on June 6 the Paytm board allotted equity shares to six employees, including Dhawan, who had applied to exercise options vested under the employee stock ownership plan (Esop). “This is likely a precursor to a full and final settlement,” said a source aware of the matter.
