HUL’s Ashok Venkatramani likely to join MCCS as CEO

Media Content and Communications Services (MCCS) that airs the news channels Star News, Star Ananda and Star Majha, has finally decided on a CEO. HUL’s Vice-President, Skin Care, Ashok Venkatramani, will be joining the company in this role. No official comments were available at the time of filing the report but sources close to the development confirm the move.

Sources also inform that Venkatramani would take charge at MCCS very soon. For Venkatramani, this would mean a change in domain. At HUL, he was looking after the skincare and personal products category of the company.

The position of a CEO at MCCS was left vacant ever since Uday Shankar moved to STAR India as COO in the second quarter of 2007; he was subsequently elevated as CEO. MCCS has functioned under the leadership of D. D. Purkayastha since August 2007, when he was officially named Managing Director of ABP Group, which is a majority shareholder of MCCS. The other shareholder is STAR Group.
