The Ymagis Group has appointed Maxime Rigaud general manager of exhibitor services for France, Switzerland and Africa. The announcement follows the group’s purchase statement on March 25 of the French company R2D1, which is specialized in the installation and maintenance of digital cinema equipment.
"We are thrilled to announce this acquisition as part of our strategy to grow our products and services offer," explained Ymagis CEO and co-founder Jean Mizrahi. "Our company is primarily known in France for our contribution to the financing of the transition to digital cinema through the VPF model. However, our service activities now represent a significant portion of our annual revenues and profits, and they are expected to increase very quickly in the future.”
"This coming together of our two organizations will allow us to not only expand our services offer but also better meet our movie exhibitor clients’ needs," said Rigaud. "We share the same work ethic and values with Ymagis Group, making this merger a natural fit. I am very pleased and proud to be heading up this new structure.”
Based in the Paris suburb of Montrouge, Rigaud reports to Till Cussmann. Rigaud’s team includes Olivier Douet, who joined the group in early 2015 as head of sales for France, Switzerland, and North Africa, as well sales managers Vincent Bruère and Virgile Fridemann.
