Mahesh Ranka quits SMG's Relay Worldwide

Starcom MediaVest Group (SMG) continues to see changes in its senior staff. Following Sanjay Shah’s move to Blue Sky, a SMG partner that helps identify outdoor spots and sites, the next announcement comes from Mahesh Ranka.

Ranka has resigned from Relay Worldwide, the sports marketing arm of SMG. He would be serving his notice period till February 2011. With this, Ranka ends a six-year stint with the organisation, where he was in one of the first teams to work on Relay Worldwide.

Speaking on the development, CVL Srinivas, Chairman – SMG India, said, “Mahesh has been leading the sports marketing practice at Starcom MediaVest Group under the Relay Worldwide banner for over six years. As he moves on from the organisation we wish him well in his future endeavours.”

Ranka said, “I have spent the last six and half years of my career at Starcom MediaVest Group. I have had the good fortune of working with inspiring teams in creating memorable properties for our clients. I want to thank the leadership at Starcom MediaVest Group for believing in the power of sports, to market brands.”

His next destination is not known yet. However, it is understood that SMG is in the process of identifying a replacement for Ranka’s post even as some sections of the industry are still questioning what SMG’s future plans for Relay would be.
