India Today Group, which runs news channels like Aaj Tak and publishes magazines like India Today, has appointed Kalli Purie as its new vice chairperson, reports MoneyLife. Kalli replaces her father, Aroon Purie, who will be now looking at strategies for the group and will be exploring new opportunities, instead of day-to-day operations of the group, according to the report. In her new role, she will look after editorial and business functions of the group, and Group CEO and Group CFO will report to her when appointed, along with executives who were earlier reporting to Aroon Purie who was looking at the group from last 40 years. In August, India Today Group’s CEO Ashish Kumar Bagga had resigned from his post citing personal reasons, and the position is yet to be filled. Beginning in 1996 at India Today Group, Kalli worked as a marketing executive and director for the India Today magazine, as well as in different divisions and capacities in the group’s print, TV and digital arms. Last she was holding a position of Group Editorial Director (Broadcast & New Media) at the media group. Kalli has studied politics, philosophy and economics from Oxford University.
