Dinesh Bhatia, Head-Treasury and Planning with HT Media Ltd, has put in his papers. He is set to join the India Today Group as CFO from the first week of September. Bhatia was with HT Group for nine years.
Bhatia’s new assignment will entail him to concentrate on planning and strategy, besides looking after resource mobilisation and investor relations. His move comes at a time when the India Today Group is poised for aggressive growth across various media domains.
While at HT, Bhatia was instrumental in spearheading its growth initiatives for the past few years, including its recently launched Mumbai edition. He was involved in various initiatives such as raising private equity and taking the company public, and was also in charge of the company’s treasury operations. He has also been responsible for the company’s investor relations since its listing last year.
