Nodwin Gaming has appointed Sidharth Kedia as its CEO to spearhead and drive the online gaming business in India. Kedia, who was until recently EVP and Head of Strategy, Data Science and e-sports at Viacom18, will be based out of Mumbai where he’ll open the first regional office for Nodwin Gaming.


Announcing the news, Akshat Rathee, Founder and Managing Director of Nodwin Gaming said: “It’s an exciting time for the firm as the overall e-sports scene in India is on the cusp of exponential growth. We are thrilled to have Sid joining us as the CEO at this time. With his rich experience in the media, entertainment, technology, and investment sectors coupled with his in-depth understanding of the gaming space and his proficiency in scaling businesses, I’m confident his leadership will provide the fuel that will propel e-sports and Nodwin Gaming to the next level. We wish him all the best. The CEO function will continue to report to the Managing Director and the Board.”


Added Kedia: “In today’s age of digital disruption where several of our cultural experiences are undergoing an online evolution, e-sports has become an unequivocal buzzword. The gaming business in India is finally coming of age. The journey of e-sports that began as a virtual battle between geeky gamers in the confines of their homes or cybercafés a decade ago, is no longer just fun and games but has evolved into a major organized sport recognized at the Asian Games and even the Olympics. I am equally enthusiastic and anxious as I take up my new role as CEO and aim to make Nodwin Gaming a global player when it comes to e-sports.”
