Markus Feldenkirchen has been put in charge of ppi Media’s U.S. branch and will oversee two of the workflow specialist’s subsidiaries in America, the company announced.
“Markus Feldenkirchen has stepped down from his role as managing director of ppi Media GmbH in order to focus on ppi’s branch in the U.S., which is of vital importance to the company as a whole, as CEO of ppi Media US, Inc.,” the company said.
He will also be responsible for the coordination of the activities of two further subsidiaries of the Eversfrank Group in the US, comosoft and Novadex, with the goal of “creating important synergies within its Media division,” the company added.
Feldenkirchen was responsible for the launch of ppi Media’s Strategy & Innovation division last year, which itself launched several digital solutions such as the location- based online service thanks, and the social media wall LeagueDeck.
“With CTO Jan Kasten and myself forming the management of ppi Media GmbH, and Markus Feldenkirchen as CEO of ppi Media US Inc., we are ideally placed to operate successfully in all markets that will be of importance to us in the future”, said Hauke Berndt, managing director for customer projects, sales and marketing at ppi Media GmbH.
