Joseph T Joseph has joined Miditech as Senior Vice President for People and Structures. This is a new position and in this capacity Joseph drives the human resources and organisational development functions in Miditech’s ambitious plans for growth.
Additionally, Joseph will function as business head for the Delhi operation that creates non-fiction and documentary content, high-end children’s programming like ‘Galli Galli Sim Sim’ for channels like Cartoon Network, Discovery, National Geographic Channel, BBC, NDTV and many other national and international channels. Delhi is also home to Miditech’s fledgling animation division.
Nikhil Alva, CEO, Miditech, said, “Knowing the diversity of Joseph’s exposure and his skill in translating the intangible to tangibles, we are confident that he will further build on the platform of excellence that Miditech has created so far.”
Replying to why the People and Structures division was brought in at this stage, Alva said, “Unlike other production companies, Miditech creates programming across many different production centres -- Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore and Singapore. As the business is growing at over 250 per cent annually, the need was felt to create a strong corporate team that oversees business across all the different centres currently in existence and new ones that are planned for the future.”
Alva added, “The Senior VP-People and Structures will be a key part of that team, considering that Miditech now has a production team that has a strength of almost 400 and is expected to double to about 800 by the end of 2007-2008. His role involves not just bringing on board and retaining key talent, but also creating HR structures and processes that are followed across all centres, and to build training and evaluation systems, as well for our production teams.”
Joseph comes from CGH Earth, an internationally renowned chain of hotels. With more than 23 years of experience, Joseph comes with a well-rounded exposure in production, advertising and education. A maverick, he is known to follow the unconventional.
