He knows very well the cinema industry, and particularly the digital cinema business. David will mainly focus on meeting UK exhibitors and distributors and explaining why the XDC’s VPF business proposal has been so successful so far in continental Europe, and why this is also an unique opportunity in UK. David will also support the business relationships that XDC has developed with Irish key players.”
