Industry leader Jörg Schiffmann joins DMD as Director of Sales


United Kingdom | September 25, 2014– DMD today announced the appointment of Jörg Schiffmann as its global Director of Sales. An acknowledged leader and innovator in the field of inflight entertainment for over two decades, Mr Schiffmann will oversee sales and marketing activity across the company’s media and technology brands with immediate effect.

“This is a highly significant appointment for DMD worldwide”, says Managing Director John Howe, “reflecting a recent phase of growth that merits the recruitment of such a heavy hitter as Jörg, and clearly signalling both our commitment to the industry and our expectations of greater success to come.”

Mr Schiffmann’s IFE career to date has included 23 years as Managing Director of Atlas Air Film + Media Service GmbH and more recently as Commercial Director of IFE Services Ltd.

In his time at Atlas Air Mr Schiffmann managed its growth from small local CSP to international industry presence across Europe, Africa, America and Asia. He was also key player in building the stock-listed Advanced Inflight Alliance into a global group of content distributors and service providers to airlines, and ultimately into the industry’s market leader.

“Our headline business is still as the world’s leading distributor of newspapers and magazines to airlines”, says Howe, “but our brand portfolio includes digital press products, full CSP services, iOS and HTML5 games and of course the Bluebox range of portable IFEC solutions. All areas that Jörg understands well, and he’s had proven success at the very highest level integrating them into one rich and compelling proposition to customers.”
