Commenting on his resignation, Kaushik said: "It’s been a great experience working at Planet Sports for the last 5 years. More so as I thoroughly enjoyed the roller coaster ride and it was fun-filled and enriching. Life is a journey to explore the unexplored with convenient halts. With this zeal and having explored what Planet Sports had in store for me, I move ahead chasing the bigger and taller dreams. Seeds were already sown in my early years and I could watch them sprouting during my stay at Planet Sports. I am excited about the impending challenges of life ahead but will always be reminded of how it is at Planet Sports."
Prior to Pantaloon Retail, Kaushik worked as a marketing manager at Vodafone Essar, assistant manager- product marketing at Vodafone Essar, assistant manager- sales and marketing at AMT (wireless division of TV Today Group) and executive at United Advertising and Marketing Services.
