Mumbai-based digital media technology company Komli Media has appointed Ruksh Chatterji as its vice president for India operations.
Chatterji joins Komli from e-commerce major Jabong.com, where he led its apparel business. Prior to Jabong, he was a management consultant at Bain & Company in New York, where he worked across the private equity group, pharmaceuticals, industrials and media practices. Previously, he spent nearly a decade in various media, including NDTV and CNN-IBN.
Chatterji holds a MBA degree from the Wharton School in the US, a Masters in Mass Communication from Jamia Millia Islamia University (Delhi), and an undergrad degree in Electronics from Delhi University.
"As a billion Indians leapfrog into becoming consumers of digital content and services, especially through mobile and apps, Komli with its unparalleled offering of digital advertising solutions is uniquely poised to capture a significant market opportunity. I look forward to working with the team to help the company reach its goals," Chatterji said.
"With the addition of Ruksh, the company has strengthened its leadership team to further scale its business operations. Ruksh joins the Komli Media team at an exciting time as the company continues to build on its industry-leading position," said Amar Goel, founder and CEO of Komli Media.
Komli offers solutions across display, mobile, video, social, search and data for advertisers, agencies and publishers. Its offerings include a real-time-bidding (RTB) performance advertising platform called ATOM that integrates audience data to improve return on investments. Headquartered in Mumbai, the company has more than 400 employees across 18 offices in India, Australia, New Zealand, Southeast Asia, the Middle East, Hong Kong and North America.
In October last year, the firm had raised $30 million in its Series E funding led by Peepul Capital with participation from existing investors Norwest Venture Partners, Nexus Venture Partners, Helion Venture Partners and Draper Fisher Jurvetson. Recently, Komli's CEO Prashant Mehta had stepped down from his role, and currently co-founder Amar Goel holds the CEO's role.
