Nikhil Rungta Joins Reliance Jio As CMO

nikhilrungtaNikhil Rungta has left Yebhi.com, where he was the Chief Business Officer, to join Reliance Jio as CMO, MediaNama had heard from industry sources. On being contacted, Rungta declined to comment on the development. Aniruddha (Ajit) Nazre, who heads data and services for Jio, also declined to comment when we contacted him. Rungta’s LinkedIn page appears to have been updated to indicate that he is the CMO at Reliance Jio.

Also note that Rajeev Suri is currently Senior VP (Marketing) at Jio.

Rungta had joined Yebhi around a year ago last year from Google, where he had been the Country Marketing Head. Prior to a three and half year stint at Google, Rungta had been the Marketing head at travel portal Yatra.com, of which he was one of the founding members. Besides this, Rungta’s had stints with McCann Erickson India, Dhar & Hoon Advertsing, Contract Advertising, Shaw Wallace & Company and Mayfair Electrical Industries in various roles.

Recently, Arvind Rao, who was a part of the team involved in launching services of Reliance Jio, had left Jio. Rao was Head of Innovation at the not-yet-launched data services operator. Rao is the co-founder and former CEO of Onmobile Global, and had joined the company in late 2012.


Corrigendum: an earlier version of this article incorrectly mentions that Rungta was the Chief Strategy Officer at Yebhi. He was the Chief Business Officer there. Our apologies for the error.
