K Sanjay Prabhu, VP, Brand Management, BPL Cellular, quits

K Sanjay Prabhu, BPL Cellular Mobile Ltd, Vice-president, Brand Management, has moved out after a stint of 24 years with the group. Prabhu had joined BPL Ltd in 1981 and was moved to BPL Mobile in 1994. Since then, he has been a central figure in the marketing function, heading the department. It’s not known where Prabhu is headed and whether a new appointment would be made to fill his role.

His last day with the organisation was December 31, 2005. This is one of the key movements that have taken place ever since the merger between BPL and Hutch-Essar operations was announced. A couple of months ago, BPL’s Marketing Controller, Kunal Ramteke, had also quit. This led to Prabhu also handling the day-to-day marketing requisites of BPL Mobile.

As is known, in July 2005, BPL Mobile’s Chairman and CEO Rajeev Chandrasekhar sold his 64 per cent stake in BPL Communications to Essar. At the time of filing the report, neither BPL nor Hutch officials could be contacted for details. According to informed industry sources, the companies were in the process of an internal restructuring.
