RBU Shyam Kumar to quit as CEO of Puthiya Thalaimurai and start his own venture
CEO of Puthiya Thalaimurai, RBU Shyam Kumar, has decided to leave the company and start his own venture. He will officially exit at end of December.
Talking about his journey with the group, he said, âIt has been a good stint. I joined Puthiya Thalaimurai during its nascent stages. It was just a magazine sold at Rs. 5. Moving from The Times of India to a group which was still in its nascent stages was a big challenge. Being a very young brand with competitors like The Hindu and Times of India was quite a task. I got a call from Sathya (P. Sathyanarayan, President.) and as I was impressed by his vision, I decided to join him.â
When asked about his exit and plans ahead, Shyam said, âWith Godâs grace, I had a very good time here. Everything is bound by time and this, I feel, is the right time to move out. I have been in media for about 21 years in my career of 28 years. I plan to venture out on my own now after taking a break. As of now, I want to keep my plans close to my heart. But as soon as things get confirmed and settled, I will tell you.â
