NEW Rukin Kizilbash is now Ten Sports’ VP - Ad Sales

Taj Television India today announced the promotion of Rukin Kizilbash as Vice President - Advertising Sales. Kizilbash will continue to lead the national sales team of Ten Sports.

Kizilbash has been instrumental in building a very strong revenue base for Ten Sports. He is credited with expanding sales in the sports domain from high-profile cricket events into a much broader array of live products as well as into sports entertainment such as the WWE.

Said Sharmista Rijhwani, Managing Director, Taj Television, “Rukin brings with him an unparalleled ability to optimise the sales of Indian cricket, which requires tremendous skill and poise, along with a keen understanding of how to craft lesser known sports product into win-win solutions for advertisers who want more than cricket. I know that with Rukin leading our team of sports specialists, who I firmly believe are foremost in the industry, Taj will realise excellent growth.”

Kizilbash, reacting to his elevation, said, “With 2005-06 poised to be Ten's best year yet in terms of live content offering, I am looking forward to driving our revenue generation to new heights.”

Prior to joining Taj Television, Kizilbash worked with ESPN-Star Sports and IMG.
