INX Media and INX News are making new appointments almost everyday, and the total staff strength between the two entities now stands at over 100. Even as some of these appointments have already been reported in exchange4media, Anthony Pettifer, Group Director, Brand, Strategy and Planning, INX Media, explained more on the roles of these appointments.

aMap’s CEO, Tapan Pal, has come in as a group resource as Chief Research and Analytics Officer. He would be reporting to Pettifer. “From media research, competitive research to just about any kind of analysis that is required for our programming, strategies and the way forward would be handled by Tapan,” Pettifer said.

Another senior appointment is that of Andew Barron, who comes in as Programming Head for INX News. Barron would be reporting to INX News CEO, Vir Sanghvi. Barron has 13 years’ experience and has various award winning documentaries to his credit like ‘The Temple of the Tiger’. In his new role, he would be working on long format programmes and other non-news content for News X. As is known, the News Head of the channel is Avirook Sen, who also reports to Sanghvi.

Pettifer further informed that Sai Nagesh had been roped in as Head, Brand Communication – Entertainment. He would be looking after the advertising, branding, channel PR and communications of 9X. He, too, would be reporting to Pettifer. A similar position in News X is yet to be filled.

The content team, too, has new additions. Under Richard Platt’s supervision, Dilip Ghosh works as Creative Director, UTV’s Shakeel Memon is heading on-air promos, Ranjana Jetley, who has worked on properties like ‘Big Boss’, is heading Operations, Content, and BR Film’s Ashok Bhushan is looking after movie acquisitions.
