R Rajmohan has quit the Outlook Group where he was National Head-Advertising. He is joining Images Multimedia Group as President and Publisher from December 1. Rajmohan has been with the Outlook Group for the last eight years.
Rajmohan said, "In my career spanning close to 20 years, I have worked with four of the most reputed media companies in India. There comes a time when the question 'what next?' becomes pressing and that's what I was facing. Images Multimedia is a group I have seen from close quarters and I can confidently say that I am moving into a certain kind of entrepreneurship role to partner in the growth of a company that's steadily growing."
Images Multimedia Group was established in 1992 and has been playing a vital role in organising the fashion and retail businesses in India. The Group already has established itself among its B2B titles and has recently entered the consumer space. The magazines include Images fashion and retail magazine, Images (Business of Fashion) and the recently launched international magazine, Images Retail Middle East.
Rajmohan would play a key role in adding more titles and grow the business.
He began his career with The Times of India after which he spent close to six years at the India Today Group, where as Advertising Manager he was involved with most of the brand and was instrumental in the launch of India Today Plus and Cosmopolitan. Following this, he moved to Hindustan Times, where he spent two years before moving to the Outlook Group eight years back. Besides being the National Head-Advertising at Outlook, Rajmohan was also on the management committee of the Group as well as in the technical committee of NRS.
Talking about the challenges at Outlook, he said, "I joined at a time when the founder President, Deepak Shourie, had moved with some key people. Along with Maheshwer Peri and my team, we built an organisation to a stature where it is today and is undoubtedly one of the strongest media brands in India. Another challenge was that we added new products and moved from offering two products to eight."
