The announcement comes ahead of CinemaCon, the annual convention of the National Association of Theater Owners (NATO), which will be held in Las Vegas (NV) on April 20-23.
Prior to joining the company, Jerry Murdoch served the industry during his last fifteen years both as consultant and director of sales and marketing of local integrator Sounds Associates. He began his career with Wadsworth Electronics. Commenting on his move, Murdoch said “I am extremely proud to be a new member of this innovative, capable and dedicated team. I am willing to play an active and leading role in accelerating the level of services we can offer in order to meet exhibitors’ needs.”
“Jerry’s extensive knowledge of the British cinema exhibition community makes him the perfect match for our new sales team in the UK,” said Till Cussmann, Ymagis Group’s VP Exhibitor Services. “Likewise, it’s also an ideal timing for our group at a moment where we want to accelerate business in that market, in bringing new efficient and flexible solutions to our clients such as our brand new all-in-one server solution Orchestra.”
“In addition to developing dedicated services to our clients, Jerry will be instrumental in pursuing the deployment of the electronic content delivery network in this market segment” said Manel Carreras, United Kingdom General Manager. “This move follows the acquisition almost a year ago of Arqiva’s assets in UK and Ireland, bringing a total of more than 400 connected cinemas to our global European network of 3,281 sites for content delivery.”
