Media company, Endemol Shine India, part of the Banijay Group, has announced the appointment of Rishi Negi as CEO.
He has replaced Abhishek Rege, who stepped down from his role as CEO, a few days ago.
As per the new role, Negi will oversee the existing team in India, its day-to-day affairs and productions. He will report to Peter Langengerg, COO, Banijay.
Negi moves from Banijay Asia, where he was chief operating officer.
Langenberg said, “Banijay prides itself on the development and retention of its talent, and with that in mind, it is great to be supporting Rishi in his next role as CEO, Endemol Shine India. Since he began in his post with Banijay Asia, he has been a strong backbone for the business and partner for Deepak Dhar in maintaining the entity’s growth trajectory, particularly through the pandemic. We look forward to seeing him continue to flourish in this new position.”
Negi said, “In the last five years, Banijay Asia afforded me the opportunity to be part of the Indian content revolution wherein we created an umbrella of successful content across the broadcasting and streaming platforms. While Endemol has created a strong library of shows like Bigg Boss, Fear Factor, Masterchef etc, my vision is to lead this trend curve and take it to new heights with diverse content across the scripted and unscripted genres. I’m looking forward to joining the immensely talented and experienced team at Endemol Shine India, and to together, creating some great content.”
With over two decades of experience, he has also worked with companies like Reliance Retail and Chernin Asia Media.
