Varun Kohli has joined Times Response as Deputy General Manager. In his new appointment, he will be looking after ad sales of the language publications of the Group. Kohli will be reporting to C R Srinivasan, Director-Response.
Commenting on Kohli’s appointment, Srinivasan said, “We are laying a lot of emphasis to our language publications like Nav Bharat Times, which is a leading newspaper in Delhi. A lot of changes in editorial content are planned for 2008, such as emphasis in property, educational content, etc. We also extended our reach to Ghaziabad and Faridabad, so we felt the need of someone who has extensive experience in language publications. Since Varun has that kind of experience, we decide to rope him in.”
