PayPal has promoted Rohan Mahadevan, who has worked with the online payments company since 2004, to be its new vice president for Asia.

Mahadevan, who is based in Singapore, most recently held the dual roles of vice president of global cross border trade and vice president of Latin America. He now reports to Rupert Keeley, PayPal's senior vice president of Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and Asia Pacific.

"Rohan's deep knowledge of PayPal's products and capabilities will be invaluable as we deliver on our vision to enable secure payments anytime, anywhere and any way for millions of Asian consumers through PayPal's innovative online and mobile commerce services," Keeley said in a press release Sept. 3.

"We have a golden opportunity to bring more payment innovation to the region and transform commerce in the large and accelerating Asian consumer markets," Mahadevan said in the release.

PayPal is a unit of eBay Inc. of San Jose.
