New CEO Of Prime Focus India Appointed

Global Visual Entertainment Services group Prime Focus has announced that its President and CEO, Ramki Sankaranarayanan, has been appointed CEO of Prime Focus India. The appointment, effective immediately, will see Mr Sankaranarayanan become responsible for all of the operations and business lines of Prime Focus in India, in addition to maintaining his leadership of Prime Focus Technologies.
Mr Sankaranarayanan has been with the Prime Focus group for over four years, and as a founder of Prime Focus Technologies, has led that company from inception to its current position as a market leader in providing blue-chip, global media companies with cloud-based multi-platform content operations solutions.
He joined Prime Focus with over 14 years of rich experience across technical, strategic and operational roles at companies such as Subex and Tata Elxsi.
Mr Sankaranarayanan commented: "Prime Focus is enjoying dynamic growth – in India and internationally – but we must not rest on our laurels. Prime Focus has always been known as an innovator, and a leader in its sector, and my role is to ensure we continue in this vein with new service offerings, new technological developments, the best creative offering in the marketplace and even better levels of customer service. There are many opportunities for Prime Focus India – both domestically and internationally – and I look forward to leveraging these opportunities to take the company to even greater heights."
Founder and Global CEO of Prime Focus, Namit Malhotra, commented: "As Prime Focus grows, both in India and internationally, it becomes increasingly important to ensure we have strong local leadership. Ramki has proven himself time and again through his successes with Prime Focus Technologies, and I'm sure that under his leadership, Prime Focus India will not only continue to flourish, but will be driven to even greater levels of achievement. This move further strengthens our international management team and also allows me to spend more time concentrating on Prime Focus' global ambitions."
