HBO Max India onboards Arjun Nohwar as country GM

Nohwar was last associated with Uber as APAC director and regional GM.


Mumbai: WarnerMedia-owned streaming service platform HBO Max has brought Arjun Nohwar on board as country general manager (GM) for India.

Nohwar was last associated with Uber as APAC director and regional GM. He led Uber’s SaaS business across the Asia Pacific region, targeting companies as well as consumers directly. "The last five and a half years at #Uber have been a thrilling ride, to say the least. Building out Uber for Business across the APAC region, with the help of a brilliant team (you all know who you are!), was a privilege I'll always be grateful for," Nohwar said in a LinkedIn post on Monday.

"For my next adventure, I'm delighted to share that I have joined #WarnerMedia as the Country GM for #HBOMax in India," he further said.

Prior to Uber, he was part of the distinguished TAS cadre at the Tata Group for a decade where he worked in sales, operations and consulting roles across a variety of tech and non-tech industries.

Nohwar is on the advisory board of AMBA, a social enterprise that works to solve for alternate education and employment solutions to empower the intellectually challenged. In 2021, he received IIT Kharagpur's Young Alumni Achievers Award.

Meanwhile, WarnerMedia had announced that HBO Max will be available in six European countries in October and 14 additional territories next year, without disclosing India launch plans. It is currently available in the US, Latin America, and the Caribbean.

The video streaming service had appointed SonyLIV’s Sugata Mukherjee as head of content for India in early November.
