Hema Govindan resigns as Nick India General Manager and VP

After spending nearly a year at Nick, Hema Govindan has put in her papers as the kids channel’s General Manager and Vice-President. As per an official release, the reason for quitting was cited as personal reasons.

Announcing the move, Amit Jain, Managing Director-MTV Networks India and Executive Vice-President, MTV Networks Asia, said, “Within the short span of her tenure, Hema has done a commendable job with Nick to put it on the right trajectory of growth. Over the last eight months, Nick’s ratings have tripled. More than anything else, she is leaving behind a team that is one of the most competitive teams in this space.”

Govindan will continue in her current assignment till a replacement is finalised and in this period, Jain will work closely with the Nick team to continue to pursue the channel’s growth objectives for the year.

Govindan, who has over 18 years’ experience, was earlier with Walt Disney Television International (India) as Head of Marketing & Communications, where she was involved in launching and developing their multi-channel offering. She has also worked with Turner Entertainment Networks Asia as VP, Marketing and PR, Burson-Marsteller, Roger Pereira, Ogilvy & Mather and Astra Communications.
