Bidyut Dumra

Executive Director / Head of Ecosystems

DBS Bank

With over fifteen years of professional experience in various multi-national organizations, coupled with a Master’s in Business Management (majors: Technology, Finance & Marketing), I have developed strong commercial acumen and a holistic view of business imperatives and functions. I have undertaken senior-management positions in media, entertainment, telecommunications, automotive, utility and aviation which includes in-field exposure with markets such as, Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore, China, Taiwan, India, Thailand and Vietnam.

Recent role responsibilities have had a focus on building and delivering ecosystems and partnership, digital strategy and innovation into the organization from setting principles and standards, identifying opportunities, training and applying design thinking and agile, rapid prototyping, structuring and financing products, implementing and operationalizing systems, managing change and running programs to invoke a culture of creativity and innovation amongst workforce. 

In parallel to my corporate career, I have exercised my entrepreneurship by co-founding and partnering on a number of diverse ventures including a film distribution & production company, an international film festival, a boutique technology consultancy, an arts program, retail lifestyle products and baby clothes. It is this diversity in experience, entrepreneurial instinct and evangelistic passion for agility and design that led me to DBS Bank where I was heading Ecosystems; a partner-powered approach to Innovation.
