FOSTER CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Visa Inc. (NYSE:V) today announced the appointment of Vasant M. Prabhu as Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, effective February 9, 2015. Prabhu succeeds Byron Pollitt, who previously announced his intent to retire.

"After a thorough global search, we are thrilled to have Vasant join the Visa leadership team," said Charlie Scharf, Chief Executive Officer of Visa Inc.

His financial leadership, operational abilities, strategic focus and global mindset will be extraordinarily valuable to us, as we continue to grow our business around the world."

"I want to thank Byron for his contributions to Visa. He was instrumental in helping transition Visa from a private association to a successful global, public company," said Scharf. "We will continue to benefit from the great work he has done during his tenure with Visa."

Mr. Prabhu joins Visa from NBCUniversal Media, LLC, where he served as chief financial officer, overseeing the company's finance function as well as the operations and technical services division, which includes its technical operations, physical plant, corporate services and information technology functions.

Mr. Prabhu will report directly to Scharf, and be responsible for Visa Inc.'s financial strategies, planning and reporting, in addition to all finance operations and investor relations.

At Starwood, he was responsible for all financial functions, information technology and a range of corporate functions.
