DCIN Sets High Goals under Guidance of Seasoned Leadership
Digital Cinema is a fast-growing U.S. motion picture exhibitor integrating cutting-edge digital technology with a variety of content that includes major motion pictures as well as live sports events, concerts, conferences, operas, ballet, and more. As of February 2013 the company operated 18 cinemas and 178 screens in Arizona, California, Connecticut, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Ohio.
As a player in the competitive film industry, DCIN leverages its highly experienced management team to stay abreast of latest cinematic technology and to execute a creative and effective strategy to keep customers loyal to the Digiplex brand.
DCIN’s head honcho is chairman and CEO A. Dale “Bud” Mayo, who founded and led both Cinedigm Digital Cinema Corp., the pioneer and leader in digital cinema, and Clearview Cinema Group, a top U.S. theater circuit. In 2010 he was inducted into the film exhibition Hall of Fame for recognition of his achievements within the film industry.
Chuck Goldwater supports the strategic development of and oversees the operations of Digiplex, benefiting from prior senior management positions at a number of leading theater exhibitors including USA Cinemas, National Amusements, and Loews Theatres, as well as work at Cinedigm and Digital Cinema Initiatives. He too has been recognized for his industry efforts, and in 2012 was inducted into the industry’s Hall of Fame. Goldwater has two key areas of expertise that DCIN values highly important to the company’s growth: strategic digital cinema deployment and alternative entertainment programming.
On the financial front, Brian D. Pflug, CPA, serves as DCIN’s chief financial officer. Pflug, CEO Mayo, and others on the management team have a long history together, starting in 1998 when Pflug was controller at Clearview Cinemas. The two then worked together at Cinedigm Digital Cinema Corp. where Pflug rose to senior vice president of accounting and finance.
The film industry is all about technology. DCIN Chief Technology Officer Jeff Butkosvsky has more than 25 years in technology management, software development, and technology sales, in addition to an extensive background in digital cinema. He previously served as Cinedigm Digital Cinema Corp.’s SVP and CTO where he was responsible for all technical operations. Butkosvsky has also acted as technical liaison with Fox, Disney, Paramount, Sony, Universal, and Warner Brothers for digital cinema deployment agreements, digital system conformance, and content delivery; and was the liaison with several film exhibitors including Carmike, Rave, Celebration, and Emagine to sell and deploy digital cinema systems in their theatres.
Under the leadership of a highly experienced management team, which is supported by several other members, DCIN has established the goal of creating a national circuit featuring 100 theaters with 1,000 screens – with a near-term goal of growing to 300 screens by year-end.
