Hi, what are you looking for?

Another NetworkPlay Founder, Sunil Punjabi, Exits Venture

Sunil Punjabi, Chief Revenue Officer of digital sales agency and event venture NetworkPlay has exited the venture. Punjabi was a co-founder at NetworkPlay, and becomes the second founder after Rammohan Sundaram to exit the venture. Punjabi was also VP Publications, and heading iMedia Connection India*. Another co-founder, Ampreet Singh, is presently CEO of Networkplay.

NetworkPlay was acquired by Gruner and Jahr (G+J), a part of the Bertelsmann group. G+J also owns a majority stake in MaXposure Media Group, which it acquired in July 2011. It also recently acquired a fledgling mobile ad network called Seventynine, from the Smile Vun group.

We were under the impression that the NetworkPlay founders had a lock-in till December 2013, but, speaking with MediaNama, Punjabi said that they had options for part exits in December 2012 and December 2013. “Ram and I exercised the option for exiting in December 2012. We have received fair value for the exit,” he said. Punjabi is taking a sabbatical for a month, and is weighing his options. He will be starting work again from January.

In other NetworkPlay news, Hitesh Trehan has been promoted as Director Sales.

Corrigendum: This article had (previously) incorrectly mentioned the CEO of NetworkPlay as Amanpreet Singh instead of Ampreet Singh. The error is regretted. Our apologies.
