SVG Media today announced the appointment of Akshay Mathur as Senior Vice President of Komli Media. In his new role, Mathur will lead business operations as well as Sales and Marketing functions and will be responsible for its P&L.
He was most recently the Senior Director of Sales at Komli Media, leading up to Komli’s merger with SVG Media last month.
Mathur joined Komli in 2011 and has a total of 13-years of experience in both digital and print sales. Before joining Komli, he was a part of the revenue monetization team and focused on the telecom industry at Yahoo Inc. He has earlier worked with The Times of India, The People Group and The Jaypee Group in various sales and marketing roles.

Welcoming Mathur to SVG’s leadership team, Manish Vij, Founder and CEO, SVG Media said, “Akshay’s rich experience, client relationships and his deep understanding of Komli’s business and the internal environment make him the natural choice for leading Komli’s next phase of growth under the SVG umbrella. We also welcome other senior leadership of Komli Media by retaining the team and culture of the organization.”
Commenting on his new role, Akshay Mathur said, "I am extremely excited to work with the renewed energies and vision of the company. Jointly, Komli Media amd SVG Media will be India's leading ad-tech company and I am confident that with this merger, we will be able to take Komli Media to even greater heights. The company continues to work independently, under the SVG Media portfolio. We also plan to provide our customers with new media and technological solutions by leveraging next generation programmatic buying platforms."
In August 2015, SVG Media announced that it was merging Komli Media’s India business and global brand rights with itself. Komli India now functions as an independent entity under SVG Media, with the latter serving as an umbrella company.
