CHENNAI: Peepul Capital top executive Arjun Ananth has taken over as the CEO of diagnostics firm Medall, the Chennai-based company founded by serial entrepreneur Raju Venkatraman.

In a statement to ET, Ananth said : “Raju has expressed his desire to retire from active day to day operations. The board felt that since I have been serving on the board as representative of Peepul Capital and have a good understanding of the business, in the interest of continuity, it would be appropriate for me to take over as CEO of Medall.”
