Times Network appoints Rasesh Gandhi as cluster sales head – news
MUMBAI: Times Network has roped in Rasesh Gandhi as cluster sales head for news channels Times Now and ET Now.
Gandhi was earlier in the Times Group’s Response team where he was VP of sales.
In his new role, Gandhi will work closely with the leadership in a bid to ensure that the portfolio grows manifold. The news ad sales team will directly report to him.
Gandhi has been with The Times Group for almost two decades in varied roles. In his previous role at Response, he helmed verticals such as Auto, FMCG and Real Estate. He was a part of the special task force and played an instrumental part during the launch of Zoom TV.
Times Network MD & CEO MK Anand said, “His association of almost two decades with The Times Group and specifically Times Response gives him an extra edge, particularly at a time that Times Network has now established itself as a strong leader bringing top end audiences to advertisers. Rasesh’s experience in representing out prime print brands coupled with his understanding of sales will be crucial in our endeavour to right-price our news brands. It is a pleasure to welcome him on-board.”
Gandhi added, “I am very pleased to be an integral part of the television division of India’s largest media house, The Times Group. Having worked with the network for such a large amount of time will definitely be a boon for me in understanding the network goals and driving strategies. I look forward in contributing to my fullest to my new role and having an extremely pleasurable working experience.”
Gandhi has also worked at Home TV, Radio City, HCL and Hewlett Packard Ltd.
