Network18 has kicked off the week with some significant changes in its senior management. The high profile move of Rahul Joshi, Editor-in-Chief, Economic Times, who was also on the Board of Directors of the Bennett, Coleman & Company Ltd, to Network18 as CEO-News and Group Editor-in-Chief has come in effect. This not only marks new leadership in the company but also a first ever corporate role for Joshi.
 
The development coincides with AP Parigi moving out of Network18 as its Group CEO into an advisory role. Network18 informed in an announcement over the weekend that Parigi would now be advisor to Adil Zainulbhai, Chairman, Network18.
 
Soon after the announcement of Joshi’s appointment, Senthil Chengalvarayan, Editor in Chief, Business Newsroom, Network18, decided to move on after a 21-year stint with the Group. 
 
In an internal email sent to Network18 employees, Zainulbhai stated, “As the CEO-News and Group Editor-in-Chief, Rahul will spearhead and ultimately drive with ‘ownership mindset’ of all aspects of our company's rich and diverse portfolio. For this to succeed, he would need the complete support of each one of you, especially from co-owners and leaders of each business and editorial products.”
 
Following Mumbai, the leadership team will also be in the Delhi office in the week to meet Network18 employees in the two cities.
