New Times Internet COO Rajesh Sawhney joining Reliance Entertainment

Rajesh Sawhney has resigned as COO, Times Internet Limited, and is joining Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Enterprises as President, Reliance Entertainment. Sawhney was associated with Times Internet from the very beginning and was one of its founder members. He will be joining from middle of next month.

Speaking to exchange4media, Sawhney said, “I am thrilled to be part of Anil Ambani’s vision to drive entertainment on the mobile screen. He has ambitious plans in the entertainment business. I will be driving the growth in mobile, gaming and portal space.”
