Kartik Sheth dons double hats of Chief Innovation Officer, Airtel and CEO, Wynk. He’s also been chosen as one of India’s Hottest 40 under 40 CEOs by Economic Times. He was chosen to lead Wynk - an ambitious foray by the Telecom Player in the OTT space - for his strong track-record of leading some of Airtel’s most futuristic initiatives including 4G LTE and mobile data business. Within two years of its launch, Wynk has established itself as a formidable player among on-demand Music Streaming apps with its flagship Wynk Music, Wynk Movies, and Wynk Games apps. Wynk Music recently crossed half a billion monthly streams, and is on the fast-track to becoming the ‘Spotify of Emerging Markets’ under his leadership.
Speaking on the occasion, Kartik said, “The award is just the visible face of a massive team effort. It’s one more reason to put in our 100% and more. There’s so much more to do – more customers to win, more initiatives to drive go-to-market excellence, more markets to conquer, and many more awards to win. Armed with our talent and future-ready products, we are ready for a phase of aggressive growth and market dominance.”
Kartik has earlier worked as the COO of Lakmé Salons at Unilever and McKinsey and Co. in the consumer practice. He is an alumnus of IIM Ahmedabad, where he was an Industry Scholar. Under his able leadership, Wynk is ready to scale the heights and become the undisputed industry leader among OTT service providers.
