Zeel's sales director Ankit Anthwal moves on

He had joined Zeel in 2015 as senior manager - North (Zee TV).

Mumbai: Zee Entertainment Enterprises Ltd's (Zeel) director of sales Ankit Anthwal has announced his decision to move on from the company after a six-year stint. 

Anthwal took to social media and shared an update saying he is moving onto a new chapter in his life. "As I move onto a new chapter in my life, the journey that has led me here is something I’d like to share. Zee Entertainment Enterprises Limited has been an integral part of my life over the last 6 years. This has by far been the longest time I have invested in any organisation and there are quite a few reasons for the same," he said in a LinkedIn post.

Anthwal joined Zeel in 2015 as senior manager - North (Zee TV). In 2018, he became territory head (North) and led the market for Z Marathi/Z Yuva (GEC’s) and a new music channel launch in Maharashtra, Z Vajwa.

Prior to Zeel, Anthwal worked with Star TV Network as a senior executive for two years and handled Star Plus and Star Gold. He earlier worked with Reliance Broadcast Network and Bajaj Allianz Life Insurance.

"While there are many people who work hard in their professional careers, there are very few places that acknowledge and reward the same. Zee Entertainment was that place for me. With consistent growth and support I flourished within its system. My mentors guided me through the various challenges, my peers motivated me to keep going and my teams’ efforts always ensured we thrived. Thank you Zee, for a rollercoaster ride that has finally reached its conclusion, leaving behind a thrilling experience that I’ll always be thankful for and have fond memories of," he further said in the same post.

Anthwal completed his MBA in marketing from ICFAI Business School, Hyderabad. His next assignment is still unknown.
