ZEE Network UK and Europe’s Head of Business, Govind Shahi has quit the organisation, BizAsia.co.uk can confirm.

Rumours had been rife about Govind’s departure from ZEE Network since Monday when BizAsia.co.uk reported the news. Our sources can now confirm that Govind put in his papers at the beginning of this month. He was expected to leave at the end of June but has now gone on gardening leave. His last day in office was on Friday (15th April).

ZEE Network has remained quiet on the developments but BizAsia.co.uk understands that an official internal announcement was made yesterday.

It is widely expected that Bharat Kumar Ranga, COO of International Business, ZEE Network, will look after the ZEE Europe operations until a replacement has been found.

It is not yet known where Govind will be heading to but rumours suggest a possible link to either Di5 or a start-up of a new venture.
