Obituary: Alkesh Kanani (1966-2010)

Alkesh Kanani, a thorough gentleman, an honest professional and a good conversationalist, passed away following a massive heart attack on April 25, 2010. He was just 44. Kanani had just returned from London when he breathed his last with his family beside him. He is survived by his wife and two daughters.

Kanani had 19 years of professional experience behind him as a successful business development professional with a wide experience including an integral part of the media industry for more then 10 years. He had worked in organizations such as Movie Beam, Zee, and Dolby, among others.

In December 2007, Kanani was appointed Business Head of India operations at B4U Network. In his earlier assignment, Kanani was with audio engineering company Dolby Laboratories Inc., where he was handling business development.
