Christian Heinkele is the new managing director of Eviso Germany, the exclusive sales and distribution partner of platform operator M7 Group in Germany.
The move was announced by Eviso in a letter to its business partners of which Broadband TV News obtained a copy. In his new position, Heinkele will head the marketing and channel management of the cable and IPTV products in Germany.
Most recently, Heinkele was responsible for content and business development at M7 Group in Luxembourg. Previously, he headed the areas of content acquisition and product management in Germany.
Eviso’s former managing director Alessandro Lanfranconi has left the company at his own request. As director finance and later as commercial director and managing director, he has been one of the driving forces behind the successful establishment of direct-to-cable platform KabelKiosk and its integration into M7 Group following the acquisition from satellite operator Eutelsat.
