After completing nearly a year with Radio One, Raj Gopal Iyer has quit the FM station as Station Head - West. He is setting up his own advertising, media, marketing and HR consulting firm, Blue Ocean Consulting, which would be mainly into manpower search, training and team building activity. The main objective would be to help organisations find the right talent at the right time and help them motivate it.
Iyer is currently serving his notice period and would continue working with the organisation till March-end.
Confirming his movement to exchange4media, Iyer said, “I have already put in my papers and will be here till the end of this month. I am setting up my own venture in recruitment, training and team building activity. The entire objective is to give back the industry whatever I have learnt in the last 15 years. Radio One is an exciting place and people here are all passionate about their work and in building their brand. I had a good time working with Radio One, but then I always wanted to have a business of my own.”
Iyer had joined Radio One in May 2008, prior to which he had considerable experience in the field of media and entertainment. Iyer had earlier worked in sales and marketing in companies such as Sony Entertainment Television, Start TV, Jadoo Works, Times OOH Media and Percept Picture Company. Prior to joining Radio One, he was with Big FM, where he was heading the NTR business nationally.
