Reliance strengthens its executive leadership team to integrate Radio, TV businesses

After a successful FY’14-15 with top line growth of 25 per cent and 60 per cent growth of EBITDA in Radio, Reliance Broadcast Network Limited announces the elevation and integration of its top management for this fiscal.

The Executive Leadership Team will work seamlessly across Radio (92.7 BIG FM) and Television (BIG MAGIC and BIG MAGIC Ganga) businesses.

Tarun Katial, Chief Executive Officer, Reliance Broadcast Network Limited, said, “In order to build a future-ready organisation, we want to build a team of lateral leaders. Their focus will be on developing skills of the team in areas of innovation, creativity, risk taking and adopting an entrepreneurial approach. I am certain that the team will deliver and continue to successfully drive the growth story for the group.”

The Executive Leadership Team with Tarun Katial at the helm as the Chief Executive Officer will comprise Asheesh Chatterjee as Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, looking at new opportunities and expansion plans in addition to Finance and Regulatory. Ashwin Padmanabhan as Executive Vice President and Business Head will oversee television channels - BIG Magic and BIG Magic Ganga, in addition to handling his existing role as Business Head for 92.7 BIG FM; Sunil Kumaran as the Chief Strategy Officer across revenue and product as well as marketing for both mediums and Paritosh Painter as the Network Creative Director across both mediums.

After a successful stint of almost two years with the organisation, Lavneesh Gupta, the Chief Operating Officer has decided to move on.

The group released the Little Hearts online-only campaign, #BreakSomeHearts, early this year and is on the path to make many more of its brands available on the digital platform
