Changes at Mint: R Sukumar replaces Raju Narisetti as Editor

HT Media’s business paper Mint, which was launched as a joint venture with the Wall Street Journal, has effected senior level changes in its editorial team. Raju Narisetti, who was roped in as Editor of the paper at the time of its inception in 2006, is moving back to the US. He would, however, continue his association with HT Media as its Advisory Editorial Director.

Mint’s Managing Editor R Sukumar would succeed Narisetti as Editor, and would report to Rajiv Verma, CEO, HT Media.

Consequently, Niranjan Rajadhyaksha would replace Sukumar. The changes are effective January 2009.

In a conversation with exchange4media, Verma said, “Raju had come from the US and he has been here with us ever since the paper was announced in 2006. He now wants to move back. However, as Advisory Editorial Director, his association with HT Media would continue. We are very proud of the product that he has helped create; he has contributed immensely in setting up a world class business paper, and bringing a high editorial standard in the product.”

He added, “Raju and Sukumar are part of the team that had together set up Mint. We expect Sukumar to carry forward the standards that Mint has brought to business journalism in India.”

Prior to Mint, Narisetti had worked with Wall Street Journal for 13 years. His last assignment was Editor of its European Edition, and he has also served as a Deputy Managing Editor of Wall Street’s US Edition. Sukumar, a 14-year veteran in business journalism, was previously Managing Editor of Business Today. Rajadhyaksha, too, is from the team that had joined at the inception of Mint. He has 20 years’ experience in business journalism and was previously deputy editor of Business World.

Mint was launched in February 2007 as India’s first business Berliner, and at present is available in five cities.
