Sanjay Puthli quits MTV Networks India as Ad Sales Head

After moving to the India operations in November 2006, Sanjay Puthli, Senior VP-Ad Sales, MTV Networks India, has called it a day. Prior to his India assignment, Puthli was with MTV Networks Asia as Executive VP. He has had a decade-long association with the organisation. MTV Networks India is in the process of finalising his replacement. While Puthli would continue in his current assignment till April 20, 2007, details about his next assignment were also not available.

Announcing the development, Amit Jain, Managing Director, MTV Networks India, said, “Sanjay has been an asset to the organisation and has played a significant role in taking MTV Networks’ advertising sales from strength to strength -– not only in India but also in his role overseas with MTV Asia. His vast experience across regions, and his energy and passion for the brand will be sorely missed.”

Commenting on his move, Puthli said, “I consider myself extremely fortunate to have spent most of my working life in the broadcast industry. I am humbled and feel privileged to have had the opportunity to work for a dynamic company like Viacom with a stable of exciting brands like MTV, Nickelodeon and VH1, and some unbelievable talent, both in India and South-East Asia.”

Starting his stint with MTV Networks in 1997, Puthli was an integral part of the team that launched the channel in India. In 2003 he took on a larger role as Head of Advertising Sales and Network Development, MTV Networks Asia, and was responsible for South-East Asia. Coming back to India in 2007, Sanjay played a key role in achieving exceptional growth for the organisation.
