Sportskeeda appoints Shard Sharma as VP, Sales and Marketing

Online sports site Sportskeeda, which recently celebrated its 5th year anniversary, has appointed Shard Sharma as its VP, Sales and Marketing for its Indian as well as overseas markets. Sharma will look to maximize Sportskeeda’s brand value, traffic and monetization through various sales and marketing campaigns.

Sharma has more than 14 years of experience, having worked previously with,,, Webdunia, Zee Network and Reliance (Zapak).

“Sport in India has tremendous scope for growth, and Sportskeeda, with its ever-expanding digital media reach, is one of the few organizations in the country capable of accelerating that growth. I hope to be in the thick of things when the sports revolution in India reaches fruition,” saidSharma.


Commenting on the appointment, Porush Jain, the CEO of Sportskeeda, said “Shard can expand Sportskeeda’s reach many times over with his innovative ideas and expertise. Sportskeeda has already established its name in India and overseas but there is still a lot more that can be done, especially considering the ever-increasing number of sports leagues all over. With Shard on board, we can ensure that we capitalize on this opportunity to take sports to a whole new level.”

While cricket still forms one of the major focus areas of the site, the coverage of other sports like football, tennis, hockey, badminton, etc. has helped Sportskeeda carve a niche for itself. During the FIFA World Cup, the company saw its average monthly readership going up from 3 million unique views in April-May 2014 to 5 million in June-July 2014.
