NDTV Media restructures top brass

In a recent restructuring exercise, NDTV Media has decided to elevate some of its key people, giving them larger portfolios. Neeraj Dutt, hitherto the EVP of the company, has been promoted to COO, while Avinash Kaul, who was Senior VP, has been made the EVP.

The other elevations include that of Vikas Khanchandani, Rohit Gopakumar and Hemant Arora, all of whom have been made Senior VPs. While Khanchandani will head the sales operation for channels such as NDTV 24x7, and Nick; Gopakumar will head the sales operation for NDTV Profit and will also be responsible for the Group’s event division, NDTV Media Live. As is known, this division was put in place six months back and has done over 90 events for both internal and external clients. Arora would be looking after the sales operation for NDTV India, Mi Marathi and the verticals.

NDTV Media CEO Raj Nayak confirmed that these changes had already been affected.

Besides these, some other key promotions are that of Avani Mehrotra, Anju Thakur, Namrata Tata, K R Pavithra, and Harsh Bhandari, who have been made Associate Vice Presidents with regional responsibilities, and Ron Crasto, who has been elevated as Vice President.

Speaking on the decision behind these changes, Nayak said, “One of the biggest assets of NDTV Media have been its people, and all these people have been with NDTV Media since its inception almost five years ago. They have been instrumental in making the company what it is today – India’s largest independent media sales organisation – and this is in recognition of their efforts.”

Meanwhile, the company is on an expansion mode, and has already added NDTV Lifestyle, MetroNation Delhi and soon would be adding MetroNation Chennai and MetroNation Mumbai. NDTV Media is also the exclusive sales agent in India for Nick, MSN, NDTV.com and also has a presence in the regional media with the 24-hour general entertainment channel Mi Marathi.
