Karlheinz Dern has joined Imagine Communications as a regional sales manager based in Munich, Germany. He will be responsible for several key accounts in Germany, as well as all customer activities across Switzerland.

Dern brings a wealth of experience to Imagine. He has worked in system design, support and training before making the move to sales, where he has held roles with a number of leading vendors and system integrators in the media and entertainment sector. Bringing this wide-ranging and successful career to support Imagine’s customers in the region will help them to meet the challenges and realize the opportunities that arise as they continue on the migration path to IP connectivity, software-defined technology and virtualization.

“I am delighted to be joining Imagine Communications, a clear leader in the media technology market,” Dern said. “This is a time of exciting change for our customers and I intend to bring my systems background to help them define their own transition plans to the IP future. I will continue to build on established customer relationships and develop new ones that ensure Imagine maintains its position as a technology partner of choice for the broadcast and media community.”

Mathias Eckert, SVP APAC and EMEA for Imagine Communications, added, “Karlheinz has a proven track record of identifying, negotiating and closing deals through lengthy and complex sales cycles. Most important, he has a great track record in building relationships with media and entertainment customer at all levels, which will only serve to further enhance the confidence, trust and belief in Imagine Communications that already exists in the market.

“He is taking responsibility for a really important growth area, for our business and for the media industry as a whole,” Eckert added. “We are significantly increasing our overall resources in the area, demonstrating our commitment to the region and providing customers with further support as required.”
