May 2, 2019
Viacom18 has announced the appointment of Gourav Rakshit as COO – Viacom18 Digital Ventures. He will be joining the organisation this month, and will be reporting to Sudhanshu Vats, Group CEO & MD, Viacom18.
“Our digital foray has grown exponentially since its inception 3 years back, with the sharply segmented businesses – the ad led model, the international business and the soon-to-be-launched subscription based VOOT Kids service”, said Vats.
“As we unlock business value, Gourav, with an in-depth understanding of digital disruption and a proven track-record of envisioning subscription growth, is the right person to lead our talented teams across the Digital Ventures portfolio.” With over 2 decades of experience in Consumer Technology, IT and FMCG sectors, Gourav started his career with Nestle and took two more stops – Planetasia and Infosys Consulting – before joining People Group, where he has been for the last 11 years.
