Arpan Chatterjee appointed Chief Sales and Marketing Officer of NaiDunia Group

NaiDunia Group has appointed Arpan Chatterjee as its Chief Sales and Marketing Officer. He moves from CyberMedia’s online tech job portal, where he was Associate Vice President, Marketing, Sales and Customer Support.

Vinay Chhajlani, CEO and Director, NaiDunia Group, said, “Arpan’s well-rounded experience in print and Internet space, his enthusiasm and vast customer contacts made him an ideal choice for this position as both NaiDunia and Webdunia execute an aggressive growth strategy.”

Commenting on his new assignment at the two NaiDunia Group companies – NaiDunia newspaper and Webdunia portal – Chatterjee said, “The NaiDunia assignment for me is like a homecoming. The online and print properties have recoded manifold growth in the last few years. My new role allows me to leverage my experience to actively contribute to the growth plans of NaiDunia’s integrated media offerings.”

In Chatterjee’s first term with the NaiDunia Group, he had spent over three years driving sales at Webdunia between 2000 and 2004. In his new role, he will be headquartered in Mumbai. Chatterjee has had over 12 years’ experience in sales and marketing. His successful stints included media companies in the print, new technology and Internet space.

The 60-year old Indore-headquartered newspaper NaiDunia is executing an aggressive expansion plan, having grown from a single edition in Indore two years ago to six editions (Gwalior, Bhopal and Jabalpur in Madhya Pradesh, and Bilaspur and Raipur in Chhattisgarh). The Group claims that its circulation figures have more than tripled in the last two years to over half a million copies.

Multi-lingual portal Webdunia is present in nine languages and offers email service in 11 languages. The traffic and users at the portal have been growing at 6-8 per cent month with over 80 million page views per month.
