Zee Network restructures with new appointments and responsibilities

Zee Network has announced an in-house re-organisation in order to harness talents from within and offer them wider responsibilities. Punit Goenka, who was Business Head at Zee TV, will now be Network Operating Officer, Zee Entertainment Enterprises Ltd (ZEEL).

With Goenka’s new designation, Tarun Mehra has been announced as Business Head of Zee TV. Other appointments are that of Mohan Gopinath as Business Head of Zee Cinema, Irshwin Balwani as Business Head of Play TV, and Ajay Balwankar as Business Head of Zee Marathi.

Announcing the changes, Goenka said, “This re-organisation is a result of our learning from an in-depth internal communications exercise, during which I met most of the managers within the Network, to assess the width of in-house talent. It was truly satisfying to reaffirm that we have an extremely talented pool of people. I believe by enriching their portfolios, they will lead Zee Network with greater vigour and effect. I wish them all the best in their respective new roles.”

Mehra was earlier Marketing Head at Zee TV. He had joined Zee Network in January 2005 as Vice President-Marketing of Zee TV. Gopinath had joined Zee Network in 1996 as a Management Trainee.

Balwani will assume duties of Play TV, in addition to his present portfolio of Business Head of Zee Muzic and ETC Network. He joined Zee Network in September 2005. Prior to Zee, he was with The Times of India for 13 years. Bhalwankar started his career with film journalism and joined Zee Network in 1994 as Assistant Director.
