Uday Shankar is impact Person of the Year 2010

The wait is finally over. After a multi-phased voting process that facilitated the Indian media, advertising and marketing industry to choose the one individual who made a difference to the industry in the year gone, 10 nominees were selected – of which one would be crowned impact Person of the Year 2010 on the basis of industry voting.

Being a nominee itself signifies that the fraternity has voted for these individuals as key contributors to the industry, and to their businesses, in 2010. But impact Person of the Year is for the one individual who makes the cut above the rest. This year, the coveted award has gone to STAR India’s CEO, Uday Shankar.

The event, which was presented by Jagran, took place in Mumbai on December 16, 2010.

While accepting the award, Shankar thanked his team that has been working over the last decade, and the last one year in particular, to have led to the STAR India CEO winning the award.

The evening saw the Who’s Who of Indian media, advertising and marketing industry present to celebrate the award.

It was a formidable list of media and advertising personalities who made it to the final 10 nominees this year – Sam Balsara (Madison World), Ravi Dhariwal (BCCL), Arnab Goswami (Times Now), Sanjay Gupta (Jagran), Aroon Purie (India/ TV Today), Vikram Sakhuja (GroupM), Ronnie Screwvala (UTV), Uday Shankar (STAR India), Man Jit Singh (MSM/ Sony), and Rajiv Verma (HT Media).

Conceptualised in 2005, some of the biggest names in the industry have been conferred the impact Person of the Year Award. The first impact Person of the Year was Peter Mukerjea (then CEO of STAR India). In 2006, it was Rajdeep Sardesai (IBN Network); the following year, it was Vijay Mallya. Lalit Modi was adjudged impact Person of the Year in 2008. In 2008 itself, based on reader feedback, there was also an impact Person of the Year (Editorial Choice) Award, which was conferred on Raghav Bahl (of Network18). Rajesh Kamat (Colors) was declared impact Person of the Year 2009.
