Gautam Mukerjea, who had quit Indian Express last month where he was Marketing Head of the Group’s English brands (The Indian Express, The Financial Express and entertainment magazine Screen), has joined Geotel Technology Services Ltd as CEO. Mukerjea is also among the Board of Directors, and would be responsible of overall company operations.
GeoTel is a six-year-old company that deals into IT solutions and IT enabling services. The company has a portal named geoteltech.com, and is planning to build a knowledge process outsourcing (KPO) unit, which will be launched by the end of the year. Mukerjea would be involved in managing the portal, building up the KPO, and also managing the IT business of the company.
“It is a huge opportunity for me to work with a company that is six years old in the IT business. Geotel was formed at such a time when the IT industry in India was not doing well, and today it has made its presence felt by offering quality services in the IT business,” said Mukerjea. He added that it made sense to be a part of the growing industry and contribute to the development of the company.
