Kamal Jain made Printer and Publisher of DNA

DNA (Daily News and Analysis) has elevated Kamal Jain to Printer and Publisher. This will be in addition to his current role of Chief Financial Officer. Jain took charge as Printer and Publisher from November 24, 2009. He will continue reporting to KU Rao, CEO, DNA.

In conversation with exchange4media, Jain said, “For any newspaper, the most important thing is to be impartial, ethical and be the first to report.

Jain has been with DNA for over three years now. A chartered accountant with 17 years of professional experience in varied industries such as Media & Entertainment, Chemical, Shipping and SAP Consulting, Jain has worked with quite a few large organisations. He had also worked with Essel Corporate (Zee Group) for a brief period before joining DNA in August 2006. Jain has earlier worked with Percept Group, Swiss multinational company Ciba Specialty, and SAP Consulting.
