Global independent producer-distributor Banijay has appointed Rishi Negi as the new chief executive officer of Endemol Shine India.

In the role, Negi (pictured) will oversee the existing team and its productions along with day-to-day affairs.

Negi joins Endemol Shine India from Banijay Asia, where he served as chief operating officer, supporting CEO Deepak Dhar and the wider business, on operational, commercial, financial and general business-driven strategic matters. He joined the group with over two decades of experience in hospitality, entertainment and retail, having worked for the likes of the Taj Group of hotels.

In the new role, Negi will report to Banijay COO Peter Langenberg, who oversees the region. Rishi’s appointment follows Abhishek Rege’s recent resignation from his post as CEO of Endemol Shine India.

“Banijay prides itself on the development and retention of its talent, and with that in mind, it is great to be supporting Rishi in his next role as CEO, Endemol Shine India. Since he began in his post with Banijay Asia, he has been a strong backbone for the business and partner for Deepak Dhar in maintaining the entity’s growth trajectory, particularly through the pandemic,” said Langenberg in a release.
