Prime Video has elevated Gaurav Gandhi from Vice President, India to Vice President, Asia Pacific, according to an internal memo circulated in the organisation recently. 

Gandhi will now lead APAC, which includes Japan and South East Asia in addition to India. He will assume this new role in April 2023 and will be based in Singapore.

As Gandhi moves to take on this larger responsibility, Sushant Sreeram, currently Director – SVOD Business, will be elevated to the position of Country Director, Prime Video, India.

Gandhi is an industry veteran and joined Amazon in 2018. He has been in charge of Prime Video's overall business in India, including SVOD, Marketplace (Prime Video Channels and TVOD), and Sports. 

Prior to Amazon, Gandhi worked in companies such as Viacom18, NDTV Imagine, and STAR India in various leadership roles. He moved into the video streaming space in 2015, and set up, launched, and ran Viacom 18’s streaming service Voot as his last role prior to joining Amazon.  

Sreeram has worked closely with Gandhi since he joined Amazon in 2018 as Director – Marketing, and was elevated to Director – SVOD Business in 2022. As the SVOD business leader, he was entrusted with building the Subscription Video on Demand (SVoD) business through the acquisition, growth, and engagement of subscribers across B2B and B2C segments.

Prior to joining Amazon, Sreeram led marketing for Xiaomi in India.
