Getty Images strengthens India leadership team

Digital media company Getty Images has appointed Nitin Lakhotia to the new position of Director, India. In this role, Lakhotia will lead the India team and is also tasked with identifying and developing growth opportunities beyond Getty Images’ core traditional customer base. His appointment is part of Getty Images’ plan to enhance its Asia Pacific presence as well as its ability to serve customers in India and worldwide with a greater choice of innovative and inspiring content.

The business is currently recruiting to further strengthen its team.

Lakhotia brings over 15 years of experience across business consulting, telecom and media verticals, joining Getty Images from IMG’s consulting business in India, which he established in 2008. At IMG, he initiated consultancies in the public sector, real estate, tourism, naming rights and sponsorship. Lakhotia’s experience also includes consolidating and growing businesses for Tata Teleservices, Reliance Infocomm, Bharti Airtel and ESPN Star Sports.

Lakhotia will be based in Mumbai and will report to Glenn Parker, Vice President of Sales for Asia Pacific at Getty Images. Commenting on the development, Parker said, “As the demand for engaging content grows, Getty Images is continually evolving to provide fresh, locally-relevant imagery, video and music, and to support its customers in the Indian region with effective content management and delivery tools. Nitin brings a tremendous combination of experience, industry knowledge and energy to the team, and will play an integral role in the strengthening of Getty Images in India as we broaden our focus on India’s burgeoning media sector.”
