Anil D Ambani-owned Reliance Entertainment’s Big Synergy Media Limited has appointed Rajiv Bakshi as its Chief Executive Officer.

An alumnus of Harvard Business School, Bakshi comes with over two decades of experience across TV, Internet, media, telecom and consumer durable industries. He has a deep understanding of broadcast media & OTT, digital, mobile and FMCG industries, the company said in a statement.

Previously, Bakshi was the Chief Marketing Officer at Intex Technologies, where he led the brand strategy across four business verticals – smartphones, electronics, durables and accessories.

Prior to Intext, Bakshi was VP & Head Products & Marketing, India & South Asia, at Discovery Networks Asia-Pacific, where he steered strategic development and localisation initiatives for a multi-channel portfolio for Discovery Channel serving 100+ million pay TV households.

Speaking about his new role, Bakshi says, “I am incredibly excited to join Big Synergy at this stage of the company's evolution into scripted shows, along with the non-scripted content. Content will fuel the next wave of growth in media. India is one of the rare markets where both television broadcast and OTT platforms continue to demonstrate robust growth. I am passionate about transformative disruptions that change consumer behaviour and will strive to create a competitive advantage and long-term value for the business and our esteemed clients.”
