In a major management reshuffle, Kwan Entertainment announced the appointment of its founding partners Indranil Das Blah and Vijay Subramaniam as its Co-CEOs. In the new role, the veteran duo will manage the day-to-day operations and the agency business at Kwan. The move is aimed at leveraging their combined extensive experience in the fields of entertainment, media, sports, and music to drive the company to the next level of its growth.
The latest development will also see Kwan’s Founder Anirban Das Blah take on a more evolved strategic role, in which he will guide the firm’s long-term vision, strategy, and growth as its promoter. The move will additionally give Anirban the opportunity to diversify his professional interests to other business ventures such as Mojostar (cofounded with Jiggy George) as an investor, promoter, and mentor.
Other members of the Kwan senior leadership team will continue in their current roles. Co-founder Madhu Mantena will continue to drive the evolution of Kwan into a diversified media and entertainment company, along with Anirban. Founding partner Dhruv Chitgopekar continues to spearhead its brand and consumer incubation initiatives.
Speaking on the management rejig, Anirban said, “Having helmed Kwan for almost a decade now, I feel the time is right for me to hand over the reins of its day-to-day operations to Indranil and Vijay. They’re both extremely talented individuals who’ve been associated with Kwan from day one, and have proved their business management acumen time and again by driving exponential growth for their respective verticals. With them spearheading Kwan’s business operations as Co-CEOs, I have no doubt that the firm will continue to grow at a rapid pace, evolving and expanding in sync with the rapidly-changing entertainment and media ecosystem of the country.”
Indranil added, “I am eager to take on this new role and the responsibility that it brings, and uphold the faith that the team at Kwan has bestowed upon me.”
Subramaniam said, “I am confident that, with Anirban guiding the company’s strategic vision, Indranil and I will add more milestones to Kwan’s ongoing success story by leading the company into the next phase of its growth.”
