Details of Dutta's sudden departure were not immediately clear.

Dutta joined Visa in August last year to take up the regional role left vacant by Kapoor following his promotion to head of products and marketing for Central Europe, Middle East and Africa.

Kapoor relocated from Singapore to London to take on his new role in May 2009. He held the regional role since May 2007, and prior to his time at Visa held the post of EVP of Nestlé India for two years.

Dutta joined Visa from his position as communications vice-president and head of marketing at Sony Ericsson where he spent six years. Since his appointment he has worked closely with TBWA following the agency's appointment to the brand's US$600 million global business, ousting incumbent BBDO. Visa works with OMD for its media business.

Dutta could not be reached for comment.
