NEW DELHI, August 12
Online trading portal Indiabulls.com has appointed Rajiv Raghunath as head of content development. Indiabulls.com, which has been online for just under three months, is in the process of structuring its core team, and Raghunath's appointment is a step towards giving content management the required impetus and direction. With the appointment of Raghunath, the head count at Indiabulls' top management swells to 19.
Touted to be a one-stop shop for e-trading, Indiabulls.com promotes online trading over traditional offline trading. Last month, television software company TV 18 is reported to have picked up a 26-per cent stake in Indiabulls for Rs 35 crore. The site, promoted by Orbis Infotech, is on an expansion mode and is now seeking to tap the NRI markets in the US, UK and the Middle East.
On Raghunath's coming aboard, Sameer Gehlaut, co-founder & CEO, Indiabulls, said, "We are delighted to have Mr Raghunath join our top management. His extensive knowledge and experience further expands the breadth of our team."
Raghunath will be responsible for features, articles and general content, in addition to e-commerce research. A former journalist, Raghunath has been associated with The Economic Times and The Financial Express. In fact, he moves to Indiabulls ending a five-year stint at the latter publication.
With an academic background in Economics and International Studies, Raghunath was earlier involved in economic research with bodies such as SCOPE Centre of Economic Development and ICRIER (Indian Council for Research on International Economic Relations).
