Leadership Remarks

QYOU Media CEO and Co-Founder, Curt Marvis commented, 

“We are thrilled to have Raj on board to direct the next phase of growth for our business in India. In our time working with him as a consultant to the business over the last several months, it became clear to me and the board that his skill set was directly applicable to our business objective to become a larger brand with more direct to consumer initiatives in India, including via our most recent launch of the new freemium version of Q GamesMela. In addition, his understanding and knowledge of how the creator economy works following his roles at both and Tik Tok is invaluable for us as we build a creator centric brand and business. His appointment to oversee our entire operation in India launches a very exciting new chapter in our history.”

Raj Mishra added, 

“I joined the board of QYOU Media because I was excited about the size and scope of the opportunity that they had built the foundation for. In working more directly with the business since that time, I have realized the potential is even greater than I had first realized. That is not to say that there isn’t a tremendous amount of hard work, coordination and execution ahead…that is certainly necessary. But it does feel like we have only scratched the surface of what is possible and I have made both Curt and the board aware of my thoughts on how I see this unfolding in the coming years. I can’t wait to get deeper into working with the executive management and employees at all the business units and helping us build the India business to a level of success that we all know collectively is possible.”
