Oneindia CEO Sriram Hebbar steps down
Hebbar to join start-up in videos space that focuses on sports personalities
Sriram Hebbar, CEO, of Greynium Information Technologies Pvt Ltd that owns multi-lingual platform Oneindia.com has stepped down.
Oneindia.com is part of the Daily Hunt group.
Hebbar joined OneIndia in 2006 as Chief Operating Officer. He took over as CEO in 2011.
In an email to his colleagues, Hebbar wrote, “Today, I end my day-to-day job at Oneindia. This decision sounds unexpected, but it has been a well-thought-out one and a gradual transition. I have been cutting on my role over the last few months and have been passing my work to the leadership team. I would also like to reiterate that I will not entirely disappear and will always be available for each one of you as and when you need my advice to come out of tough situations in your day-to-day job.”
He wrote, “I have always treated Oneindia as my child, and in any parent's life, there comes a time when you are proud of the child, but you don't want to see your child every single day. I feel, if I have done a good job as a parent, my child will do well on its own. While I walk away, I am sure the team that is going to take care of Oneindia is fully proficient of guiding and taking it to the next level.”
Giving hints on his future plan, Hebbar wrote: “For those of you who are inquisitive about what I plan to do, my new venture will take me away from Bangalore for most part of the month. I will be working for a start-up in the videos space that focuses on sports personalities. I am sure it will be a roller coaster ride, but what is life without challenges!”
“BG Mahesh and I got together in 2000 and it has been nothing short of a roller coaster ride for 19 years. BGM's belief in me has made me what I am today. While he is not with Oneindia today, I would like to profusely thank him for everything that he has given to me as my mentor, as a colleague and as a family member. It has been a privilege to work with each one of you over the last 19 years.” I have enjoyed working with you and cherish every moment with you. I have travelled a lot and have seen teams from so many companies very closely, but nothing compares to the creativity, integrity and loyalty of the team at Oneindia. I can proudly say that what I am today is absolutely and solely because of you. My heartfelt thanks to each one of you for being a part of my journey at Oneindia,” wrote Hebbar.For more updates, be socially connected with us on
