“MEGA is delighted to welcome Vikram Kumar as its new CEO”, said Lentino. “I have assisted MEGA since its inception, putting time and energy into finding investors, setting up support staff and general overview of the company in its initial stage. Now MEGA runs on a day-to-day routine and I am pleased to hand the role of CEO to Vikram who is an experienced leader in the Internet industry.”

“MEGA is an exciting business and one that I am delighted to be joining”, said Vikram Kumar. “Since launch just over two weeks ago, the company has had some stellar successes, with over two million subscribers joining MEGA.co.nz.
