deltatre opens new offices in Germany and France

by Press Office

The global sports media services company deltatre has opened two new offices in Munich and Paris as part of the company’s ongoing expansion.

deltatre was formed over 25 years ago and has experienced exponential growth in recent years. It has become one of the world’s leading information technology companies providing the sport media industry with innovative digital media, broadcast and back-end solutions.

Giampiero Rinaudo, deltatre CEO and Co-Founder, said “The opening of two new offices in Germany and France is an important step for the group’s development. We want to stay closer to the local sport federations, clubs and broadcasters providing them with what they really need. From this perspective, it is important to emphasise that given the tremendous potential of two of the largest European markets, we decided not to establish just a representative office but two solid operational bases from where we can really serve our clients.”

“Ten years ago we decided to set up a permanent presence in the UK, so we created deltatre Media in London. In terms of business that choice revealed to be so successful that a couple of years ago we opened a second office in Manchester” said Luca Marini, deltatre CEO and Co-Founder. “This investment is part of a wider commercial strategy, ensuring deltatre has a presence all over the world in all key areas of our business.”

The creation of deltatre Germany has been led by Stefan Schuster, formerly Head of New Media and Sales and Business Development at FIFA. He joined deltatre this year to manage the permanent company presence in one of the most relevant markets in Europe, continuing to further raise the brand awareness.

deltatre has a long standing history as a global leader in digital media and broadcast services for major sports events” said Stefan Schuster. ”The decision to establish deltatre Germany will now give a lot of potential clients in Germany the opportunity to directly benefit from our know-how and experience.”

Bastien Lacheny, the former product manager of deltatre’s digital solutions, is responsible for the company’s business in France. He joined deltatre in 2009 to create products for broadcasters’ digital coverage of the major sporting events including the Olympic Games, Rugby World Cup and UEFA Champions League.

“The main goal is to increase our presence in the French market by being closer to our clients and prospects” said Bastien Lacheny. “Having a permanent presence in Paris is the most effective way to support rights holders in their day to day activities. To do that, we’re also looking forward to developing operational capability as quickly as necessary by recruiting local staff.”
