Nikhil Mirchandani to become NGC South Asia Head with Zubin Gandevia moving to Hong Kong

National Geographic Channel (NGC) is seeing some senior level changes. Zubin Gandevia, currently Managing Director, South Asia, for the NGC Network, will move over as MD, Asia, NGC Networks, in January 2006. Consequently, Nikhil Mirchandani, Head of Ad Sales for NGC India, will take over from Gandevia as MD, South Asia.

Dilshad Master, currently Senior VP-Content and Communication, will take on a larger role at the end of the year, which will include providing strategic support to ad sales, marketing and programme development.

NGC officials were not available for comment at the time of filing the story as all senior officials are away in China.

In the new order, Gandevia will be based in Hong Kong and will oversee operations in South Asia, Middle East, India and other neighbouring countries. He will take over his new position from Ward Platt, who will take on a larger role of managing the Asia Pacific region. Gandevia will continue to report to Ward.

Mirchandani will be in charge of both NGC and History channels for the Middle East, India and neighbouring countries. He will also continue to head Ad Sales for all these regions and will report to Gandevia.
