The next leader that we’re proud to commemorate in our #RiseToLead series is Pratik Mazumder, (CMO, Mahindra Holidays & Resorts India Ltd.). His story emits excellence, and his journey reflects growth, dedication, and confidence. Here’s what our Master of Marketing strategies has to say.
“As the Chief Marketing Officer of Mahindra Holidays & Resorts India Ltd, I’m responsible for creating and accelerating the organization's marketing & growth strategy. I lead the organization's vision of becoming the world's leading vacation ownership company and redefining the way families holiday in India.
My unique skills in marketing and passion for creativity and storytelling along with my rich understanding of digital consumer trends have enabled me to build brands like Times of India, Gaana, Cricbuzz, MX Player, ETMoney, Times Internet, Airtel, and Yatra in my previous roles.
I’m a focused, result-oriented, and high-energy leader who is always curious to learn and deliver positive outcomes which led me to be honoured with the ‘100 Most Influential Marketing Leaders in the World’ Awards in 2016. With over two and a half decades of work experience, I am someone who thrives on challenges, thinks long term, and drives objectives with a keen eye on results while ensuring a balance between flexibility and agility.
As an award-winning professional and a Wharton Business School alumnus, I am proficient at handling business and strategic issues. I have also been an entrepreneur running my own media and content creation company. I was previously a Member of the Advisory Board of Ad:tech India, Director on the Board of Bennett Broadcasting and Distribution Services, Acuate (Cricbuzz), and Times Content Ltd, and currently a Member of the Mahindra Group Executive Brand & Customer Experience Council.
I had joined Mahindra Holidays at the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 when the world had come to a standstill. To capture the anticipated trend of revenge tourism, I led my team hands-on with a differentiated marketing strategy to deliver a 2x growth in the last couple of years.
As a Mahindra Future Shaper, it is important to keep learning, striving for excellence, not being afraid to experiment, and bringing transformative changes in your outlook in life.”
