DMCii’s ambitious development and infrastructure enhancement plans have been enriched with the appointment of the new General Manager Martin Philp.

DMCii is a world-class provider of global daily satellite imagery for customers in more than 30 countries across the globe. Philp now manages a rapidly growing distribution and partner network for the company’s popular high frequency 22-metre Landsat-compatible satellite imagery and the provision of very high-resolution optical imagery and future products, including daily 1-metre optical capabilities.

Philp has a wealth of experience working with established platforms such as BBC iPlayer and Apple iTunes. The dynamic skill-sets that Philp’s noteworthy career offers, will act as a critical support to carry DMCii through these vast infrastructure improvements to ensure that they will continue to be regarded as a distinguished provider of fast and precise satellite imagery data.

Dave Hodgson, Managing Director of DMCii, said: “This is an extremely exciting time for DMCii, the appointment of Martin as General Manager will help lead our expansion into higher resolutions and future products with supporting infrastructure to deliver runaway growth.”

Philp was promoted from DMCii’s sales team after joining the company in July 2012. Before joining DMCii, he ran his own consultancy that managed growth and business systems projects for technology companies. Philp brings vast experience leading a series of growth orientated technology businesses in the global broadcast industry.
