Jehangir Pocha calls it quits at Businessworld

Businessworld’s Editor Jehangir Pocha, who had taken charge in March 2007, has decided to move on. Even though speculation had been rife for some months now, it is understood that Pocha has now put in his papers and is in the midst of his final days at the organisation. Details on his destination next, or replacement at Businessworld are not known as yet.

No official comments were available at the time of filing the report, but it is learnt that Businessworld would make an announcement on this on January 9, 2009.

Prior to being the Editor of the magazine, Pocha was the China correspondent for The Boston Globe. During his stint, the magazine had undergone a redesign and an editorial revamp that Pocha believed played a significant role in the latest circulation figures of the magazine.

Before becoming a journalist in 2002, Pocha had spent a decade in business, and worked with several start-ups and Fortune 500 companies in the US. He also has an MBA from Mumbai’s SP Jain Institute and a degree in media and foreign policy from Harvard University.
