After a stint of over four years, Sanjay Trehan, Chief of the Internet division, Hindustan Times, has put in his papers a few days back. He is on a notice period currently. Informed sources revealed that HT has not yet decided on Trehan’s replacement.
Trehan is expected to be in office at least a fortnight more. Commenting on his decision to move on, Trehan said, “I have had a great stint at HT. When I was initially given the responsibility, the task was a huge one. HT.com needed to be converted into a healthy unit. In the process there is much that I have learnt and the experience has been a fruitful and productive one.”
Trehan had joined Hindustan Times in March 2001 as General Manager, Internet. He was entrusted with the task of revamping the website hindustantimes.com and make it 'a site to reckon with'. He has been credited with achieving that goal.
Where he is headed, is not yet known. Trehan said, “I am Internet professional and that is where my area of expertise lies on. All I can tell you right now is that it is a fantastic offer that will rewrite the rules of the game.”
