The India Today Group has appointed Vidhu Sagar as Senior GM-Marketing for its Business Division. Sagar moves to India Today from FCB-Ulka, where he was General Manager at its Delhi office. In his new assignment, Sagar will be responsible for marketing the division’s portfolio of premium publications, including ‘Business Today’, ‘Time’, ‘Fortune’, ‘Golf Digest’ and ‘Scientific American’.

Sagar moves to the media marketing world after more than 15 years of successful work in the advertising world. An MBA from IMT Ghaziabad, Sagar began his career with Everest Advertising in the Media Planning division and moved on to Contract, and later on to FCB-Ulka, where he spent the last six years handling a wide portfolio of clients along with business development responsibilities. Some of the brands that Sagar has had rich associations with include NIIT, HCL, Compaq, Hero Honda, Bausch & Lomb, Tropicana, Dabur, ABN AMRO, and ITC – John Players, among others.

Pavan Varshnei, Publishing Director, Business Division of India Today, said, “We are happy to have Vidhu in our leadership team as he possesses not just cross-disciplinary experience across the diverse fields of media planning and brand building, but also carries the drive and dynamism that we’re keenly looking forward to tap.”

India Today Group’s Business Division has recently launched two new publications – ‘Men’s Health’ and ‘Harvard Business Review South Asia’ in addition to ‘BT More’, an add-on to ‘Business Today’.

Commenting on the challenge ahead, Sagar said, “After a long and eventful stint in the field of brand communications, an opportunity like this in the growth industry of today – media and entertainment – seemed very exciting. And the India Today group is unparalleled in its achievements in the country. So, I’m really looking forward to doing great work at the Business Division. There are lots of interesting things on the anvil.”
