Hema Govindan resigns as Nick India General Manager and VP

After spending nearly a year at Nick, Hema Govindan has put in her papers as the kids channel’s General Manager and Vice-President. As per an official release, the reason for quitting was cited as personal reasons.

Announcing the move, Amit Jain, Managing Director-MTV Networks India and Executive Vice-President, MTV Networks Asia, said, “Within the short span of her tenure, Hema has done a commendable job with Nick to put it on the right trajectory of growth. Over the last eight months, Nick’s ratings have tripled. More than anything else, she is leaving behind a team that is one of the most competitive teams in this space.”

Govindan will continue in her current assignment till a replacement is finalised and in this period, Jain will work closely with the Nick team to continue to pursue the channel’s growth objectives for the year.
