NEW DELHI: Zee Turner Limited, the distribution alliance between Time Warner company Turner International and Zee Network, has appointed Siddharth Jain as CEO of the company.

Jain replaces Dheeraj Kapuria, who has now moved back to the US with additional responsibilities. Earlier, he was holding dual positions.

Prior to this appointment, Jain functioned as the chief operating officer of Zee Turner Limited, according to an official company statement today.

Kapuria was given Zee Turner's responsibilities after Sunil Khanna was shifted as president of Zee Telefilms flagship channel, Zee TV, in December-January.

The official statement said that Jain has played a key role in providing strategic direction to Zee Turner's marketing efforts and the business growth of the bouquet, besides overseeing the distribution sales for the company.

Prior to his appointment as COO of Zee-Turner Limited, a company that is responsible for the distribution of a bouquet of channels from Zee, Turner and third party channels like Reality TV, Jain held the position of senior vice-president (distribution). In this role, he was responsible for conceiving and developing new businesses. Jain joined Zee-Turner Limited in 2002.

A proud recipient of the 'Sword of Honour' and gold medal from the Officers Training Academy (OTA), Jain gave up his career with the Indian Army in 1995, before joining the media business where he has over nine years of experience in the dynamic business of distribution in the cable and

satellite industry.

Jain has also worked at Star India as a regional manager in 1995 and moved to Turner International India Pvt. Ltd. in 1998, setting up the entire distribution network for South Asia. He was instrumental in encrypting Cartoon Network and CNN signals and launching HBO in South Asia.

An avid reader, Jain enjoys listening to music and playing golf too.

Zee-Turner Ltd. is a 74:26 joint venture company between Zee and Turner that manages distribution and trade marketing for Zee Telefilms and Turner International bouquet of channels in India and Nepal. Headquartered in New Delhi, Zee-Turner boasts of a combined viewership of more than 30 million households with an equal spread throughout the country.

Zee-Turner bouquet offerings include Zee TV, Zee Cinema, Zee News, Zee English Trendz, CNN International, POGO, Cartoon Network, and the regional Alpha channels.
