Veteran ‘Sales Guru’ Salahuddin Akbar Group Director Sales for Leo Television Network, Retires from Media Industry after 45 years


Sales guru Salahuddin Akbar, aka “chacha”, a big name in the media industry has served for almost 45 years before finally retiring from LTN on 31st December 2018.

A charismatic leader, starting his career from PTV in 1974 as sales manager, Salahuddin Akbar has served channels like STN(NTM), ARY Network, HUM TValong with multiple FMCGs, and finally concluding his journey with Leo Television Network. During his tenure with each group, he took challenges, and lead the teams to grow immensely.

Salahuddin Akbar has also been known to counsel and coach a lot of youngsters during his career, and therefore it wouldn’t be wrong to say that close to half of the industry, at some point or the other, has had the pleasure of working with him.

With the end of 2018, Mr Akbar finally decided to call it a day, after being part of LTN for 4 years. During this period, LTN channels such as Filmazia Entertainment saw new heights of success. At the farewell event held at LTN office, he said that after 45 years he was happy that he was retiring from LTN. He wished everyone with his trademark catchphrase “Hojayega!!”

Kevin Roy, CEO LTN remarked that It was a pleasure working with Mr. Salahuddin and he had learnt a lot from him.  He will be missed at LTN.

We wish him all the best for the future.
