Northbrook, IL, February 15, 2022 – Digital Check Corp today announced Ninad Chavan as its Regional Director for the Asia-Pacific region. The new role promotes Chavan from his former role as Group Country Manager, Indian Subcontinent, and combines the company’s previous India and APAC regions under a unified title.

In the new position, Chavan oversees all Digital Check business in the region, including more than 30 authorized distributors and hundreds of banks serving a population of nearly 4.5 billion people. He also assumes responsibility for promotion and distribution of digital microfilm readers and conversion scanners on behalf of nextScan, Digital Check’s brand in the production microfilm scanning business.

Alex Trombetta, Digital Check’s Vice President, International Sales Operations, expressed confidence that the transition will help the company maintain its position of strength as a leading supplier of banking equipment and solutions in the region.

“Digital Check Corp has expanded into a position of strength in the international market, and Ninad has played a pivotal role in this success with his development and execution of innovative business strategies,” Trombetta said. “He has been instrumental in the deployment and growth of key product lines over the past several years, and showcased his resourcefulness and ability to manage risks especially well during the uncertain pandemic times over the past two years. Our presence in the Asia-Pacific region is strong, and we look forward to accelerating our expansion further under Ninad’s leadership.”

Trombetta singled out Chavan’s work in bringing automated payment kiosks to market as an especially impactful means of facilitating easier banking access to the population during the difficult environment of the pandemic. Ninad’s extensive global experience and hands-on understanding of several International markets should translate well to other opportunities such as the upcoming introduction of check truncation in Japan, UV scanning rollouts across the Philippines and southeast Asia, and the growing presence of electronic clearing in Australia and New Zealand.
