As part of what it says is a continuation of its efforts to align its digital TV operations with the new market realities, Kudelski says that its digital TV division will be widely transformed with a new structure as of 1 2018, principally seeing the core Nagra and Conax security lines fully integrated.

The measures also involve changes in operations management responsibility, with the role of DTV chief operating officer (COO) being split into two positions focusing on sales and marketing on the one hand and on operations on the other hand. Underscoring, said Kudelski, the strategic priority that the Group is placing on commercialisation of the digital TV product portfolio, Pierre Roy will now focus on digital TV marketing and sales as DTV CMO, in addition to his role of group executive vice president. As of 1 January 2018. Current Conax CEO Morten Solbakken will be joining the Kudelski Group’s executive board as executive vice president and will lead the newly created operations team as DTV COO, including strategic portfolio management, customer developments and system integration, services and supply chain.
