Turner appoints Ashish Thukral as Marketing Head for Cartoon Network and Pogo

Turner Entertainment has roped in Ashish Thukral as Marketing Head for Cartoon Network and Pogo channels. He moves from USL, where he was posted as General Manager, Media, and was based in Bangalore. At Turner, Thukral will be based in Mumbai.

Thukral replaces Bikram Duggal at Turner and will now work closely with other network units such as ad sales, Cartoon Network Enterprises, programming and creative services to drive awareness and demand for Turner’s properties. At Turner, he will provide strategic direction to both Cartoon Network and Pogo.

It may be recalled that in June 2008 alone Turner had lost its senior marketing team – Vivek Krishnani, Executive Director - Marketing, APAC; Bikram Duggal and Karan Sethi, Marketing Manager, Cartoon Network-South Asia.

With Thukral assuming the role of Marketing Head for Cartoon Network and Pogo, now Krishnani’s post needs to be filled. Krishnani has since joined the new motion picture joint venture between 20th Century Fox and Star India as Head of Distribution, Marketing and Syndication.

Though no official comments were available at the time of filing the report, industry sources have confirmed the development.
