Suvrangsu Mukherjee is joining Total Sports Asia (TSA) as Managing Director. His last stint was with IMG where he was Vice-president, India and South Asia, for four years. He will be reporting to TSA Group CEO, Marcus Luer. Based in Gurgaon, Mukherjee will be responsible for running the India and South Asia operations of TSA, an integrated sports marketing company with offices in Kuala Lumpur, Shanghai and Tokyo. TSA opened its Indian operations earlier this month.
At IMG, Mukherjee was responsible for the Citibank deal with DLF IPL; the Manchester United global mobile gaming deal with Jump Games; brokering an exclusive licensing deal for Gitanjali to market Wimbledon branded jewellery in India, China, the US and the Middle East. He was also instrumental in leading the Miss World mobile content deal, the Lakme Fashion Week, the Chennai Open tennis tournament, and the Johnie Walker Golf Classic tournament to name a few.
Mukherjee has previously worked with Turner Broadcasting for four and a half years as Senior Manager. Prior to that, he had spent four years in The Times of India Group’s Response department and later in the brand marketing team.
At the time of filing this report, Mukherjee couldn’t be contacted. There is strong speculation that the entire sales team at IMG may move to Total Sports Asia with Mukherjee.
