MAX is assuring its share of news as the year comes to a close. The channel has just appointed Sanjay Ramakrishnan as Vice-president, Marketing and Communications.

Confirming the development, Almeida said, “It’s exciting times ahead for MAX with loads of action on the movie and cricket front, and Sanjay’s outstanding abilities, which he has successfully established over the years, will be a key asset to MAX. Sanjay has experience and knowledge in consumer marketing, sales and distribution, business development and public relations having worked across a diverse set of media businesses. He is well armed to bring all these skills to bear in this challenging and ever changing environment.”

On his part, Ramakrishnan is excited. “MAX is a great brand to be associated with.
