Kim Dotcom’s Mega, today announced that Vikram Kumar, former CEO of InternetNZ and Entrepreneur would now serve as the CEO. Vikram would now be replacing Tony Lentino, who was the interim CEO of Mega.
Following the launch of Mega, back in January 2013, the service has shot to fame with a huge number of user base, and an unimaginable number of files that are being shared with the service, in a very short span of time. Now, the company’s Interim CEO, Tony Lentino, is set to take his position as the Director with the company, and leave way for the new CEO, Vikram Kumar.
Mr. Vikram Kumar has been the CEO of InternetNZ for about three years now, and has a keen interest in serving for the non-profit organizations. InternetNZ is a non-profit organization, that aims at establishing an open Internet using the .nz domain names.
Vikram has also revealed that Kim approached him as soon as he departed from InternetNZ. And Vikram also carefully took this decision, after viewing Mega from every angle possible. But he has also revealed that the new Mega opportunity was great but risky. Vikram has also published a detailed blogpost on why he took up this opportunity as the CEO of the controversial Mega.
I think it was a wise decision to pull in a CEO like Vikram into Mega, since he has already worked with some of the Governmental organizations in New Zealand, like the State Services Commission, and also for various other Telecom related organizations in different roles.
