The change of guard at the Outlook group is now official. Though in the works for a few months, it happens due to president and publisher Maheshwer Peri’s decision to concentrate on his own business – Pathfinder Publishing Pvt Ltd which publishes Careers360 in English and Hindi, and Competitions360 amongst others.

 

With effect from April 1, Mr Indranil Roy, who has been working with the Outlook group for over a decade-and-a-half, will assume all the non-editorial responsibilities that Mr Peri held. Mr Peri will, of course, continue to be on the Board and be available for advice.

 

Speaking to MxMIndia, Mr Roy indicated that the revamp Outlook Business has seen could be visible in other brands too. For instance, Marie Claire will soon make a strong positioning statement of a premium luxury magazine.

 

As part of the restructuring, Ms Vidya Menon will head the lifestyle and entertainment brands of the group and Mr Johnson D’Silva will head the Western region in addition to Outlook Money. Mr Roy will relocate to New Delhi.

 

The Outlook group will continue to steer the distribution for Mr Peri’s magazines.
