Markets Mojo appoints Alok Nair as CEO for its soon-to-start media business

Algorithms-based fintech research platform Markets Mojo has announced appointment of media veteran Alok Nair as the CEO for their upcoming media venture. According to the company, the development is a step towards its path of scaling up into the next phase of growth with a massive tech play.

Markets Mojo was started up in June 2016 by Joyson Thomas and Mohit Batra. Haresh Chawla, Partner, True North, and former Group CEO of Network 18, is currently the Chairman and Mentor of the company.

The company was launched as a multi-algorithm based financial investment analyzing platform offering full coverage and unbiased information to an investor across all listed companies. The platform analyses over 30 million data points daily which covers market movements, fundamental research, technical, expert recommendations, news across web, portfolio strategies and other environmental factors that may affect an investors decision making process.

Commenting on Nair’s coming on-board, Mohit Batra, Co-Founder & CEO of Markets Mojo, said, “Markets Mojo has evolved as one of the finest products in the fintech space & we are gearing up for the next phase of growth. With Alok coming on board with his solid media expertise, we look forward to maximizing the full potential of our offerings and extend him all the support for scaling up.”

Joyson Thomas, Co-Founder, adds, “Markets Mojo is the most disruptive markets platform today. Markets Mojo has been created in a way that it can be made global fairly easily. It is the only platform which covers 100 per cent of the market and researches every product class. Alok and me have worked in the past in Network 18 while creating path breaking opportunities and I extend all the support required for the new media set-up. We will be launching many more disruptive products in the near future.”

In the past Nair has worked with The Times of India, Network 18 and Bloomberg TV India across various leadership roles. He also has entrepreneurial experience while setting up a few start-ups.

Prior to joining Markets, Nair was running his media turnaround consulting firm.

Also joining the yet to be named media venture are Don Zarrar as Chief of Sales and Sanjay Bhoir as Chief of Operations, who were with TV Today Network & Neo Sports respectively until recently & also were part of the Network 18 team with Nair.
