Changes at Times Internet: Archana Vohra & Puneet Singhvi leave, Avinash Agrawal joins


Changes at the COO level at Times Internet: Archana Vohra (COO, Times Card, Communities and Brandwire) and Puneet Singhvi (COO Times Global Partners) are leaving, Avinash Agrawal has joined, and Miten Sampat has an expanded role.

Sampat, who is Head of Corp Dev at Times Internet has an expanded role as the interim head of Times Global Partners, with Singhvi’s departure. Singhvi leaves TIL after joining it in 2004, having, held multiple roles until he set up Times Global Partners, which is responsible for TIL’s partnerships with international publications.

Agrawal, a former entrepreneur (had founded RouteGuru)  joins as COO – Brandwire, Communities & Timescard, from Eko where he was handling Key Partnerships and Projects. According to an email sent by Times Internet CEO Gautam Sinha on 20th September, Agrawal helped win the wallet license from the RBI for Eko, a business that he launched, and which “contributes over 80% of the company’s gross profits within a year”. Prior to joining Eko, he had been VP-Enterprise Mobility at Spice Labs. He takes over from Vohra, who had been with Times Internet since 2008, and led a rather odd compilation of verticals, as you can probably tell. In the past, Vohra had been a Director at Big Digital, and in an earlier stint, the COO at NDTV Convergence.

Surprise, surprise, iTimes still exists.

(Updates: Times Internet informs us that Vohra had joined in 2008, not 2010. We’ve updated the story to correct this error. Our apologies. We’ve also edited Vohra’s designation. Please note that the designation earlier was the same which she mentioned on her LinkedIn profile)
