Sanjev Hiremath, EVP, Indiacast Media Distribution, will exit the organisation in end-June 2013.
Hiremath headed the launch of digital media business for Viacom18, TV18 and ETV channels in his last assignment.
Anuj Gandhi, group CEO, IndiaCast, said, "Sanjev has admirably led our new media and digital business over last year or so and has put us on a path of high growth trajectory. Sanjev is an old friend and colleague and we will miss his expertise and knowledge in the cable and satellite industry.”
On his exit, Hiremath said, "It's been a fantastic 18 years with MTV India, Viacom18 and Indiacast launching television brands and building businesses and along the way making great friends and these relationships have made the journey meaningful and enjoyable. From roof top dishes to set top boxes and recently with the evolution of both technologies and changing consumer viewing to build a business in the new media space on internet-enabled devices, it has been a privilege to be a part of this industry".
Hiremath, who started his career at Catvision Products Limited in 1985, joined MTV Networks as head of network development for India and South Asia, when it was launched in the country in 1996.
