The board of Qyuki Digital Media Pvt Ltd has announced the appointment of Samir Bangara as its Managing Director and CEO, succeeding Poonacha Machaiah. Mr Bangara will assume his new role from June 3, 2013.


Prior to this appointment, Mr Bangara was managing director of the digital business at Disney UTV. With 15 years of extensive experience in the media and technology space, he was responsible for driving growth and scaling the digital business of the company in various avatars.


More than track record in building companies, what is important to me and A R Rahman is that the goals and dreams of people who join our endeavour are equal to ours. We welcome Samir in joining us both as part of the founding team, confident of his commitment, aspirations desire and abilities to venture with us beyond where individually we are capable of,” said Shekhar Kapur, film director and producer.


Unlocking the creative potential of India is an incredibly compelling idea. I was in the midst of starting my own venture focused on this when I met Shekhar. The ability to partner Shekhar Kapur and A R Rahman and coming aboard Qyuki added terrific synergies to my own ambitions,” said Samir Bangara.


Any start-up in this space is like sailing into the high seas with sails being ripped by uncertain storms. Poonacha has been a great captain at the helm and kept the ship steady and on course. He will be missed and we wish him luck” said AR Rahman, composer, singer, songwriter and record producer.
