Change in Zoom leadership: Upen Roop Rai steps down as CEO, Suresh Bala new man in

After a year of becoming CEO of Zoom, Upen Roop Rai is moving on from the responsibility. His last day as Zoom CEO would be June 1, 2006. He will henceforth be heading Integrated Marketing Solutions Group (IMSG) and Indiatimes as Director. The new man at the helm of Zoom is Suresh Bala, marking his return to India. As Zoom CEO, Bala will report to Bennett, Coleman & Co. Ltd’s Executive President Arun Arora. He is expected to assume charge within a week or two.

Prior to this, for the past three years, Bala was in Canada, and before that he was in the programming function of Channel [V]. Though television in India may not be a new experience for Bala, the changes in the last three years would definitely pose a challenge.

Under Rai’s guidance, Zoom has added various franchisees to mark its positioning of an Indian lifestyle channel. Confirming his move to IMSG and Indiatimes, Rai said, “The experience at Zoom has been a great one. I was sent here for a year and it has been a great year. I am already looking forward to my focus responsibilities at IMSG and Indiatimes.”
