Mumbai: Former Indian Premier League Chief Operating Officer Sundar Raman, who resigned after being virtually shown the door by the new BCCI regime as part of its clean-up operation has now joined Reliance as its CEO- Sports.
According to a press release, Raman, who faces allegations of not acting on spot-fixing complaints during the 2013 IPL, will be responsible for consolidation and integration of RIL’s sports portfolio including its foundation activities in sports.
Raman, who had been associated with IPL since its inception, faced a lot of flak following the outbreak of the controversy, involving former Board President N Srinivasan’s son-in-law Gurunath Meiyappan and Rajasthan Royals’ then co- owner Raj Kundra.
In addition to the existing sports properties of RIL, Raman will be driving newer avenues of growth.
On being appointed as CEO- Sports at Reliance, Sundar said: “I am delighted at the opportunity to join Reliance. Reliance’s existing sports properties coupled with its Jio digital services provides newer areas of growth. RIL has a huge aspiration in the sports area. The opportunity to be engaged in integrating the entire sports portfolio and make sports also an integral and important element in RIL’s growth will be an exciting journey.”
