Apurva Purohit

Apurva Purohit is the President of the Jagran Group, one of India’s largest multi-media conglomerates with a turnover of USD 350 million and market capitalization of USD 800 million. With over three decades of experience in the media and entertainment industry, she currently leads multiple companies across print, radio, digital and outdoor in the group.

Over the last 20 years Apurva has formed significant partnerships with private equity firms as well as promoters to build and scale up a diverse set of businesses - from early stage fledgling businesses, to setting up new ventures and to supervising turnarounds in mature and declining organizations.

She was responsible for creating Lodestar, which is today one of the largest media buying agencies in the country, and envisioning Times of India’s entry strategy into television, and has also worked on famed turnarounds like Zee TV.

In her tenure at Jagran, Apurva has pivoted the group from a deep-rooted reliance on its traditional print businesses to a focus on new age emerging businesses. The strategies adopted under her tutelage and her emphasis on excellence in implementation have increased both the scale and the proftability of these businesses manifold.

Under her people-oriented leadership and focus on building a great culture, Radio City has been consecutively featured in the Great Place To Work survey for 7 years and has become a case study on building high impact cultures which have a direct correlation on profitability.

She is an Independent director at Mindtree and also on the board of Midday Infomedia limited and Music Broadcast Limited and an advisor to private equity fund Amicus Capital and a not for profit diversity foundation, BD Foundation.

Over the years, Apurva has won multiple business awards and has been named as one of the Most Powerful Women in Business as per the India Today Group (2016, 2018, 2019) and Fortune India (2018, 2019,2020). She was amongst LinkedIn’s Top Voices and YourStory’s Top 10 digital Influencers of 2020.
