That was followed by several years at NDTV, India's leading cable news network, where Rajiv served as the CEO and established NDTV Hindu. Most recently, he served as Associate Partner at IBM's Global Business Services, running digital transformation, big-data analytics, and cognitive computing/Watson opportunities for clients in New York City and Dallas.
