K&J undergoes re-engineering; puts a pause on search business

At the forefront of India's Media, Communications & Entertainment Executive Consultancy Sector for the last two decades, K&J has  contributed  significantly to India’s rapidly expanding satellite broadcast networks, radio, multiplexes, film studios, music labels, content houses, advertising agencies, and new media ventures -- from building the initial talent pool at inception, to the stellar market presence they each have today. Through placing CEO/CXO resources and entire start-up teams, the firm has supported the growth and expansion of organisations such as Viacom18 (MTV, Nick, VH1 & Colors), Network 18, Times TV Network, BBC, Disney, Radio Mirchi, Sony Music, and INOX, to name just a few.

For partners Abha Kapoor and Nita Joshi, and their entire team, the business was never merely about talent acquisition as their fundamental approach has always been that of being highly involved mentors to their candidates, and business partners to their clients. As a result, K&J has formed strong, long-lasting relationships with both candidates and clients alike.

In an era of accelerated change, where the needs of candidates and clients have transformed, Kapoor and Joshi now see a need to transfigure the fundamental approach towards providing a broad spectrum of expertise and counselling that has been the bedrock of K&J's success. As a result, K&J is taking a pause on the search business during this process of re-engineering.
