Polimer TV ropes in J Sekhar as CEO

MUMBAI: Tamil entertainment channel Polimer TV has appointed J Sekhar as itschief executive officer.

Sources told TelevisionPost.com that Sekhar will replace Shivakumar who has put in his papers as the chief operating officer of the company on personal grounds.

When contacted, Shivakumar said, “Yes, I have put in my papers and today is my last day. I have had a good journey in Polimer and wish Shekhar all the best for his stint. I am looking forward to working on some new projects, although nothing has been finalised yet.”

It seems that the company will dissolve the post of COO, by roping in a CEO to handle the operations. Shekhar remained unavailable for comment till the time of filing the story.

Sekhar is slated to join the company next week and will report to managing director PV Kalyanasundaram. He will be based in Chennai.
