Before joining Kabbage, Deepesh spent nearly 10 years at Capital One. He began in their Debt Capital Markets group, where he managed their credit card securitization programs. Later, he served as Senior Compliance Manger, managing operational risk and regulatory compliance.
Most recently, Deepesh was the Head of U.S. Capital Markets Execution at Barclays for six years. There, he oversaw Treasury-related capital market activities in the U.S. and was an active participant in industry advocacy efforts in the U.S. and Europe.
A resident of New York City, Deepesh enjoys running on the West side Highway and is learning how to play the sitar. His favorite small business is MindBodySoul Yoga, a neighborhood yoga studio that helps yogis achieve balance and build strength and flexibility.
