Change of Guard in Destination Kerala

Thiruvananthapuram, 11 June 2015

Destination Kerala, the leading English language business monthly in the State, has announced an ownership change and expansion of its leadership team.

A new company, Destination Business Media Private Limited (DBMPL), has been constituted with Jose Kunnappally as Managing Director and George Kunnappally as whole-time director. Consequently, Destination Kerala’s ownership has been transferred to DBMPL. Mathukutty J Kunnappally, the founder, editor & publisher of Destination Kerala, will be the lifetime chairman of DBMPL.

Jose was with the India listed Prime Focus, the world’s largest media services provider, as Senior VP and Chief Marketing Officer till recently. While, George is a seasoned hospitality industry professional and entrepreneur based in Dubai.

Said Mathukutty, “The business landscape of Kerala and the readers of Destination Kerala have changed a lot in the last 18 years since we started rolling. We have expanded our leadership team and are scaling up our resources to effectively address the new set of opportunities. The emerging breed of digital consumers and increasing number of Kerala brands wanting to go national and international offer excellent avenues to extend our proven expertise in communications and marketing.”

The Thiruvananthapuram-based media house is also planning a major revamp of its flagship title, Destination Kerala, addressing both design and editorial content, to appeal to a younger and globally exposed readership profile that is increasingly also digitally savvy. Besides, the company will expand its bouquet of publications and services.
