Vinay Tonse Appointed Managing Director of SBI: A Testament to Decades of Expertise

The Government of India has appointed Vinay M. Tonse as the Managing Director (MD) of the State Bank of India (SBI) until November 30, 2025. This appointment comes as a response to the vacancy left by Swaminathan Janakiraman’s transition to the role of Deputy Governor of the Reserve Bank in June.

The recommendation for Tonse’s elevation to the MD position was put forth by the Financial Services Institutions Bureau (FSIB) in September. Currently serving as the Deputy MD of the state-owned bank, Tonse’s promotion received the final nod from the Appointments Committee of the Cabinet, headed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

In his prior role as Deputy MD, Tonse held responsibility for overseeing the Corporate Accounts Group (CAG), managing crucial relationships with large corporate clients. This signifies a wealth of experience and expertise in handling critical facets of the bank’s operations and business functions.

Tonse’s journey with the State Bank of India began in 1988 when he joined as a Probationary Officer. Over the past three decades, he has exhibited unwavering dedication, serving in various capacities within India and internationally. His versatile leadership skills have been instrumental in steering significant assignments and projects for the State Bank of India, covering areas such as corporate credit, treasury, retail, and international banking.

The Managing Director position at the State Bank of India holds immense prestige, given the institution’s vast size and scale. Tonse’s appointment underscores the significance of his contributions and expertise, as he steps into a role that carries responsibilities surpassing those of most banks in India. As he assumes the MD position, Tonse’s appointment is not just a personal milestone but a reflection of the government’s trust in his capabilities to lead one of the country’s largest and most influential financial institutions.
