Bharat Kapadia quits Lokmat; turns entrepreneur again

Media veteran Bharat Kapadia has called it quits at Lokmat Group, where he was working as a Director. Kapadia had joined the group in January 2009 as whole time Director.

Speaking to exchange4media, Kapadia said, “My contract with Lokmat got over on June 30 this year and I decided not to renew it because I wanted to turn entrepreneur again.”

At present, Kapadia owns a technology company called Whatuwant Solutions. And soon, he is going to start a consultancy firm called ideas@bharatkapadia.com. “This consultancy will be for brands and media and I will be consulting for media and marketing solutions,” he said.

Meanwhile, speaking on his stint with Lokmat, Kapadia said, “I had a very enriching experience with the Lokmat Group. The company has grown over time and is doing fantastic work. In fact, Lokmat is looking for an IPO and I wish it would have come when I was there. The company has got a lot of potential and vibrancy to grow.”

It may be recalled that in the beginning of the year 2011, Kapadia had stepped down from the post of Vice Chairman, MRUC, citing some personal reasons.
Kapadia has got a wide range of experience in print media. He has been associated with Jagran18, the joint venture between Jagran Prakashan and Network18, as CEO and Managing Editor. He had also worked as Executive Director, Dainik Bhaskar, and was Editor & Associate Publisher with the Chitralekha Group.
