Tanna has expressed her gratitude for the opportunity at working at BizAsia: “After a glorious 11 years (almost), the time has come for me to bid adieu to BizAsia – both as Director and as Senior Editor. I always wanted to write for a UK based website when I first started out and when I was approached to head up showbiz for BizAsia, it felt like something I manifested into reality. In all the years I’ve been able to take up the growing opportunities that came our way, I’ve never once taken them for granted and I know it’s been our collective hard work that they were a result of. I was even more honoured to have been given a directorship around 4 years ago and being the first female director at the company was something really special.”

“It’s been so great to see the website flourish in my time there, with all the various team members that came and went. I can’t deny that it was hard work but it was also a lot of fun. I will miss the team and my colleagues Raj & Lakh who trusted me all these years. I’ve had a privileged position and been a part of many great events and also met some very well-known names. It’s been an absolute pleasure but it’s time for a new beginning. I wish BizAsia all the very best for the future. I know it’ll continue to grow in a positive way after my departure,” she adds.

Raj Baddhan, Co-Founder of wishes Tanna all the best for her new chapter: “Amrita has been a formidable force in the development of She will be thoroughly missed but with her huge passion and creativity in the entertainment digital space, I’m sure she will continue to jump leaps and bounds. Wishing her all the luck on her future endeavours.”
