Sanjay Trehan quits NDTV Convergence

After a stint of two years, NDTV Convergence’s CEO, Sanjay Trehan, has put in his papers at the organisation. Trehan quit the organisation on April 13, 2009 and is at present serving his notice period. It is understood that NDTV is yet to find Trehan’s replacement.

Confirming his move, Trehan informed exchange4media that there was still time before he could divulge any details of his next assignment. He said, “There was a bigger and better opportunity that presented itself and I have decided to take it. However, there is still time before I can speak any further on it.”

Trehan described his stint at NDTV Convergence as an “enriching and empowering experience”. He also dispelled all speculations on his decision to move on from NDTV Convergence to be triggered by the recent cost rationalisation that the company had undertaken. He maintained, “My decision to move on has nothing to do with the recent developments at the company. Most media companies have undertaken such steps and this is not unique to NDTV in any form. NDTV has been good to me professionally and personally. I enjoyed a fantastic working relationship with the senior management.”

Trehan had joined the company in March 2007 and was the founding CEO of NDTV Convergence. From about a 15-member department, he is credited to have built NDTV Convergence into a unit of over 100 professionals, each of whom have been known names in the digital space. Prior to NDTV, he was with Indiatimes as its Vice-President, Broadband and Web2.0. Before that, he was Chief of Internet at HT Media, where he was credited with many firsts.

At NDTV Convergence, Trehan has steered the launches of many initiatives, including the first Indian full service WAP portal, NDTV Active. He was instrumental in incubating the video aggregator,, and the video-based Hindi portal,, besides a slew of channel portals.
