Sandip Tarkas moves on from full-time role at Future Group, to consult with Future and set up own consultancy
By A Correspondent
Veteran advertising and media professional SandipTarkashas called it quits at the Future Group, though he will continue to stay on as a Consultant. December 31 was his last day at Future where he was CEO Sports Media and Special Projects.
So what prompted the decision, we asked him. “Well, I have been discussing for around three years with the boss [Kishore Biyani] and I am not really growing any younger.”
Tarkas will continue to consult with Future on its kabaddi foray and instore media, and is working on his new venture. Which is? “Well, it’s got to do with the media and retail space,” is all that he says for now. A team of around six professionals has already been assembled, though it may be a few months or weeks before operations start.
After his education at IIT Bombay and IIM Bangalore, Tarkas worked across marketers and the media over the last 27 years. These being: Blow Plast, GroupM, MPG, Media Direction, Reliance ADAG and Future Group where he spent nine days short nine years.
