Following the recent investment by Lyceum Capital Partners in Briefing Media (July 2015) the company announces that Gehan Talwatte has joined as Chairman of the business.

Gehan has a long history of media entrepreneurship and investing. After starting his career at Dun & Bradstreet in the USA he went on to co-found a software start-up in India – Cognisant Technology Solutions.
