Network 18 is a very high potential company: AP Parigi

“I want to re—invent myself” says AP Parigi, who stepped down as Advisor to chairman Adil Zainulbhai Network18 and TV18 just last week, as exclusively reported by exchange4media.

  “I have had a very challenging and delightful time working with Adil Zainulbhai, the company has been extremely good to me” said Parigi on his stint with the Group.

He also confesses to have met Reliance Industries Chairman, Mukesh Ambani twice but only once last year that too at FICCI FRAMES held in Mumbai last week.

In September last year, AP Parigi Group CEO – Network18 moved to a new role as Advisor to chairman Adil Zainulbhai Network18 and TV18.  It may be recalled that Parigi was appointed as the Group CEO – Network18, on 29th January last year.

Speaking about his learnings from his stint at Network 18 he said, “Network18 is a very high potential company, it has gone through a lot of changes as you aware in the recent years. You need a very distinct product differentiation, and while everyone is gung- ho about launching new apps, it is important to track how many apps are actually being un-installed at the same time. ”

Going Forward Parigi is keen to look at part time advisory roles, as opposed to a full time role.

He is also in the process of coming on board of two start- ups based on Bangalore in the fields of augmented reality and Interior design as Chief Mentor. 

“I want to reinvent myself” says Parigi. I want to step out of my comfort zone, I want to learn, retirement is a word that is not in my dictionary.  He concluded.

He leverages over 40 years of experience spanning sectors including infrastructure, telecommunications, media and entertainment. He is an alumnus of the Delhi School of Economics, and holds an MBA, Faculty of Management Studies, University of Delhi.
