Since we announced The Ken 7 weeks ago, a bunch of readers and friends have asked us if we’re getting Ashish K. Mishra, (@akm1410) on board as a writer.

Well, we’d already done one better – Ashish was one of our co-founders. We didn’t want to disclose that fact publicly as Ashish was still a journalist with Mint, albeit one serving out his notice period. But today I’m happy to announce that one of India’s best-known business feature writers is now a full-time part of The Ken. The reason so many readers suggested Ashish’s name to us is because he has carved a great niche for himself as a writer who combines investigative reporting, gripping narrative and long-form storytelling to present complex stories in a way that readers don’t just understand, but enjoy reading too.

Like with the rest of us, you can reach Ashish with either wishes, questions or story tips by his first name

Over the next few months, we’ll introduce you to more of our new colleagues, all of whom we’re thrilled to be bringing on board and working alongside with.
