SVG Media has appointed Akshay Mathur as Senior Vice-President of Komli Media, effective immediately. In this role, Mathur will lead business operations as well as Sales & Marketing functions and will be responsible for the company’s P&L. He was most recently Senior Director of Sales at Komli Media, leading up to Komli’s merger with SVG Media last month.
Mathur joined Komli in 2011 and has 13 years of experience in both digital and print sales. Before joining Komli, he was part of the revenue monetisation team and focused on the telecom industry at Yahoo Inc. He has earlier worked with The Times of India, The People Group and The Jaypee Group in various sales and marketing roles. He had also founded an e-commerce and web solutions company, Orion Technologies, in the year 2000.
Commenting on the development, Manish Vij, Founder and CEO, SVG Media, said, “Akshay’s rich experience, client relationships and his deep understanding of Komli’s business and the internal environment make him the natural choice for leading Komli’s next phase of growth under the SVG umbrella. We also welcome other senior leadership of Komli Media by retaining the team and culture of the organisation.”
Mathur added here, “I am extremely excited to work with the renewed energies and vision of the company. Jointly, Komli Media and SVG Media will be India’s leading ad-tech company and I am confident that with this merger, we will be able to take Komli Media to even greater heights. The company continues to work independently under the SVG Media portfolio. We also plan to provide our customers with new media and technological solutions by leveraging next generation programmatic buying platforms.”
In August 2015, SVG Media announced that it is merging Komli Media’s India business and global brand rights with itself to create India’s leading digital marketing platform. As a combined entity, the new SVG Media group’s consolidated India revenues stand at over $50 million.
