Debbie Mann Returns to Deluxe as SVP, Operations and Client Relations, Deluxe Technicolor Digital Cinema, to Optimize Client Services and Support Greater Globalization of Business

Deluxe Entertainment Services Group  Inc. (Deluxe) announced today that long-time film industry executive Debbie Mann is returning to the company as SVP, Operations and Client Relations, Deluxe Technicolor Digital Cinema (DTDC). Mann will have a dual focus on distribution services and the customer experience as DTDC drives forward with new innovations and initiatives to expand its business globally.

DTDC, a joint venture between iconic entertainment services companies Deluxe and Technicolor, is the industry leader in digital cinema mastering, distribution, and key management for feature film content released worldwide.

One of the four original executives of motion picture distribution services company ETS, Mann built and led the company’s operations and client-facing services organization, growing ETS to be an industry leader when it was acquired by Deluxe and renamed Deluxe Film Services in 2002. During her previous time with Deluxe, Mann led strategy, operations, and all facets of the distribution business as SVP, Deluxe Film Services. Under her almost two decades of leadership, the ETS and Deluxe teams successfully distributed 3.5 million new release prints, supporting customers nationally. Mann was also instrumental in the launch and growth of Deluxe’s digital cinema business, running operations and client relations. She re-joins Deluxe most recently from having served as Director of Theatrical Sales for STXfilms, a division of global media company STX Entertainment.

“Debbie is a tremendously experienced and talented executive and we are very excited about having her re-join the Deluxe team” said Walter Schonfeld, President of Digital Cinema Operations at Deluxe. “Debbie’s understanding and experience with our customers, their needs and requirements, will improve DTDC’s responsiveness and success in continuing to deliver the highest quality services possible.”

Mann said, “While it is bittersweet for me to leave STXfilms after two years of working with some of the most innovative leaders in the industry, I look forward to collaborating with them in my new role. I’ve enjoyed my STXfilms role but really missed being on the vendor side, focusing on operations and creating efficiency for studio and exhibitor partners. Deluxe has always been the industry leader and trusted partner, and I am thrilled to be joining a strong leadership team. After meeting with Walter and learning about the innovation and global initiatives going on I got a clear sense for the forward movement of the company. I feel like I’m coming home – at a very exciting time.”

With the addition of Mann, DTDC SVP Sean Romano will now be able to focus solely on Digital Cinema Mastering Production Operations across the Americas; specifically concentrating efforts on continued global integration of teams in addition to global security. Mann will be based in Los Angeles and joins the company March 13, 2017.
