MUMBAI: “Goodbyes are never easy, especially when you bid farewell to such an incredible family. But it's a goodbye for now. Until we meet again, sharing something that made me laugh and gave me a tiny moment of joy during these tough times.”
That’s the touching farewell message Sudhanshu Vats posted in his Twitter as he said adieu to Viacom18, a subsidiary of Network18, after his eventful eight-year-long stint as group chief executive officer and managing director.
He tweeted the goodbye message along with a farewell video, which seemed to have been made by Viacom18 team as an ode to his long association with the organisation. The short fun-to-watch video begins with this message: “In case you forgot the last townhall, here's SV with the highlights." The funky video has Vats making a presentation, and is interspersed with quirky moments and memes.
In a new tweet, he put out this message along with another farewell video: “Thank you to the entire @viacom18 family. I will always hold you close to my heart.”
His goodbye tweets are getting flooded with hearty wishes of all kinds from well-wishers and colleagues: from the plain all-the-best wishes to viacom18-will-never-be-the-same-again. And the best, as they say, is yet to come!
Vats left Viacom18 on 14 April after expanding the media network’s reach into newer realms of consumer products and digital all the while strengthening its position in segments like regional, kids, Hindi and English entertainment. He also helmed the launch of its video streaming service Voot.
