Walter Schonfeld

Deluxe Entertainment Services Group has named Walter Schonfeld president of Deluxe Distribution.

Schonfeld was formerly president of digital cinema global operations at Deluxe, and his new role stretches his purview to encompass delivery and localization operations as well, the company said. Before joining Deluxe, he was CEO of SDI Media Group and, earlier, president of Technicolor’s Worldwide Entertainment Services Group.

“Walter has deep experience in the industry and a clear understanding of what it takes to meet our customer’s needs and expectations in this increasingly complex market,” said Deluxe CEO John Wallace in a prepared statement. “We are seeing our customers expand their content requirements across multiple geographies with compressed timelines. Having all of Deluxe’s content management and distribution services under one roof will simplify things for our valued customers while better enabling us to meet their global needs.”
