GURGAON, INDIA, April 04, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — NEP Group, the leading media technology partner for content creators around the globe, announced that it has hired Keshav Kaul as Business Head for its NEP India operations. The addition of Kaul builds on the NEP’s established presence as the leader in providing outside broadcast solutions for live sport and entertainment in India and worldwide and positions the company for further growth in the region.
Kaul brings nearly 20 years of media and leadership experience to NEP. Most recently, he served as Business Head at Fremantle India Television Productions where he led strategy, business development, physical production, legal and business affairs for the company. During his tenure there, Kaul played a prominent role in shaping and driving the company’s India growth strategy, including its entry in premium scripted content production, expanding the licensing and production of its key formats into the Indian regional language market, and opening new revenue streams by monetizing its content on digital platforms. Among his many accomplishments, he led the licensing and production of several of the company’s shows in India, including headlining shows such as Indian Idol, India’s Got Talent and You V YouTube. Kaul also drove the licensing of international formats in the neighbouring South Asian markets of Nepal, Sri Lanka, Maldives and Pakistan.
Prior to his role at Fremantle, Kaul was CEO of Sol Productions and, prior to that, served as Assistant Vice President for Strategic Planning and Commercial at Star India where he led the acquisition of original scripted and unscripted content for the Hindi channels of the network. In 2011, he also founded Benchmark Studios, a production company offering a professional approach to the business of content production in both Indian and international markets.
“I couldn’t be happier to welcome Keshav to NEP to lead our business in this very important market,” said Saeed Izadi, President of NEP Singapore, India and Middle East. “He is extremely skilled at leading teams and has a tremendous entrepreneurial drive for building businesses to new levels.

“I am delighted to be joining NEP and grateful for being given the opportunity to lead its India business. India is a fast-growing media and entertainment market and presents a great opportunity for the company’s future growth in the region,” Kaul said. “NEP is a leader in the industry, and I hope to contribute to its continued growth and success by leveraging my experience of leading world class entertainment productions.”
