YourStory expands its editorial team, D.Murali joins as Managing Editor
“Having known him for sometime, it's great to have him on board”, says Shradha Sharma, who founded YourStory five years ago. “Our stories are receiving global attention, and we needed to strengthen our team by including a senior person such as Murali. Hiring right is our top priority right now.”
YourStory has been determinedly working in the entrepreneurship ecosystem and I look forward to working with their team, says Murali.
Apart from helping manage and groom the current editorial team, my efforts will be to continually improve and define better editorial guidelines and policies.
Murali, a chartered accountant by professional training who edits and publishes online magazines, was formerly Deputy Editor of The Hindu Business Line, where he served from 1996 to 2012. In the print newspaper that he joined about two years after it had been launched in 1994, he was anchoring the Accountancy, Taxation, and Mentor pages, apart from contributing book reviews, interviews, articles and news reports for other pages and features such as eWorld, BrandLine and Variety. Some of the popular columns that Murali contributed include: AccountSpeak, Globe Trot, Detaxification, Zero Base, Byte Banter, IT Works, E-Dimension, Number Crunch, Just Do IT, Swati CA, Books2Byte, Coming to Terms, Chat, Book Value, Investment Illustrated, Jump the Odds, Stories Retold, Research Bytes, Basic Baaten, 60 Seconds Chief, Say Cheek, and Sticklish Issues. Murali has been maintaining an active online presence, blogging since 2006 (‘Food for Thought’ is about interactions with hundreds of business leaders and domain experts), and vlogging since 2008 (‘Pitstop4Performers’ channel in YouTube crossed 2.5 million video views recently). http://in.linkedin.com/in/muralide
