MUMBAI: After serving Zee Entertainment Enterprises Limited (ZEEL) for close to 16 years, the network?s chief content and creative officer Bharat Ranga has decided to move on. Ranga, who put down his papers on 23 September, according to a source in the network will serve his last day on 7 October 2014.

Being a part of ZEEL since 1998, he took over the content role in April 2012 where he was managing content business for all domestic entertainment channels of the network.

He is the man who can be credited for the launch of &pictures, labelled as India's first interactive movie channel.

Prior to that, he was the executive director - international operations, leading and managing international business of the company. Before joining ZEEL, he was with Times of India.

A commerce graduate from the University of Rajasthan, Ranga has done his MBA from the University of Ajmer and an Advanced Management Program from Wharton Business School.

A letter was sent out by ZEEL MD and CEO Punit Goenka today morning to the team in the network to announce Ranga?s resignation. The letter read:

?We wish to inform that Mr Bharat Ranga has decided to pursue his career beyond ZEE. With deep regret, we have accepted his decision and will always wish him the very best for his future endeavours.

Bharat has been with the organisation since 1998 and he has had a long checkered career with us. Bharat moved across functions and domains seamlessly, from sales to business head roles to being the International Business Head and then, the Chief Creative and Content Head for the organisation. During his tenure, Bharat has been instrumental in creating value and building opportunities for the organisation.

During his career span with the ZEE, Bharat has contributed to the overall growth of the organisation by leveraging new revenue opportunities, bringing about path breaking content, starting new streams of content through new channel launches and transcending the business beyond geographies; to name a few. Bharat had the capability to move with ease in managing the environment and challenges. We wish to sincerely thank him and put on record his valuable contribution made to the organisation.

Bharat?s last day with the organisation will be 7 October 2014. All those verticals and functions which reported to Mr. Bharat Ranga will now report to the undersigned until further advised.

We wish Bharat the very best for his future endeavor and the team continued success for future.?

Best Wishes

Punit Goenka

MD & CEO
