Entropia expands leadership line-up with Pavan Kharbanda as partner
Entropia has added Pavan Kharbanda (pic) as its Partner, in its latest bid to expand its leadership line-up. Pavan will be responsible for leading commerce, Investor relations, expansion and Media Investments.
Pavan Kharbanda, the seasoned finance leader, served as the CFO of IPG Mediabrands in Asia from 2012 to 2016, alongside Prashant Kumar (the founder of Entropia), who led IPG Mediabrands in the region in the same period. Before IPG, he worked with Grey Global Group South East Asia, Group-M in Sydney, and Ernst & Young in San Jose and KL.
Pavan subsequently left IPG to join Havas Media as Head of Middle office in Kuala Lumpur, thus expanding beyond finance. Pavan also acted as advisor to many startups in the digital space in his own personal capacity.
“Pavan is one of his kind in our business – bold, brilliant, passionate and world-class. He understands both value creation and value capture equally well – just the type of leadership Entropia savors,” said Prashant Kumar, senior partner of Entropia.
“His joining the team means that each of our leaders have more time to focus on the product advantage, and business effectiveness for our clients,” added Prashant
“It’s a homecoming of sorts for me. In the last 18 months, Entropia has led the industry in so many ways and grown from a start-up to, well, a grown up. I look forward to bring my own piece of future to Entropia and help take it to yet another level,” said Pavan Kharbanda.
