MUMBAI: Former editor of CNBC Awaaz and CNBC Bajaar, Sanjay Pugalia has joined Raghav Bahl’s The Quint. He has joined as president and editorial director of the group, which includes media properties like The Quint and BloombergQuint.

Pugalia will report to Bahl. His main focus will be on setting up Hindi digital news platform for the venture and will also play an important role in various other verticals of Quintillion Media.

Excited about joining hands with Bahl, Pugalia said, “It’s indeed a pleasure to work with Raghav Bahl who has set high standard and goals in this field. I am excited about the new young team that has been put in place. Their work in English is extremely impressive.”

Pugalia's induction is part of Quintillion Media’s strategy to explode its regional presence, which it has been piloting over the past few months.
