Along with managing CA Media Digital’s existing products Fluence and Wakau, Jain will expand the CA Media Digital portfolio through other incubation efforts. Jain has an MBA from The University of Texas at Austin and a Masters in Electrical & Computer Engineering from Illinois Institute of Technology.

“CA Media Digital, has in a short time, made great strides to be at the forefront of the digital entertainment curve. With Fluence and Wakau we have caught the attention of celebrities, brands, and audiences alike by creating innovative products and digital platforms. I look forward to further growing the existing business and establishing new ventures,” said Vivek Jain on his appointment.
