MUMBAI: Indian esports company Nodwin Gaming has appointed Sidharth Kedia as its CEO to spearhead and drive the online gaming business in India.

This is Nodwin Gaming's first senior management appointment. Kedia will be based out of Mumbai where the company will open the first regional office.

“It's an exciting time for the firm as the overall e-sports scene in India is on the cusp of exponential growth,” said Akshat Rathee, founder and MD, Nodwin Gaming. “We are thrilled to have Sid joining us as the CEO at this time. With his rich experience in the media, entertainment, technology, and investment sectors coupled with his in-depth understanding of the gaming space and his proficiency in scaling businesses, I'm confident his leadership will provide the fuel that will propel e-sports and Nodwin Gaming to the next level.”

Kedia will report Rathee and the board of the company.

Prior to Nodwin Gaming, Kedia was deputy chief commercial officer at Viacom18. He had additional charge of corporate strategy, M&A and data sciences at the company.

“The gaming business in India is finally coming of age. The journey of e-sports that began as a virtual battle between geeky gamers in the confines of their homes or cybercafés a decade ago is no longer just fun and games but has evolved into a major organised sport recognised at the Asian Games and even the Olympics. I am equally enthusiastic and anxious as I take up my new role as CEO and aim to make Nodwin Gaming a global player when it comes to e-sports,” Kedia said.
