Peter Mukherjea turns headhunter

Now this is interesting news. Star TV CEO Peter Mukherjea has turned a headhunter, even if it is a temporary one :-)

As he waits for the noncompete clause in his contract with his former employer, Star TV, to lapse in July, Mukerjea’s executed a Lalloo Prasad-esque job swap, taking over the reigns of the head-hunting business founded by his wife, Indrani, who has gone over to INX Media, the Mukerjeas’ new TV channel project.

He’s likely to find his new career as exciting as his old one. Indian head-hunting has obviously gone global with a vengeance, with Indian firms looking for people to run their operations abroad and foreign firms looking for people to run their businesses in India.
