Part of CDM’s senior leadership team for seven years, Fab Stanghieri was most recently its Senior Vice President, Business Development, Account Services and Marketing and will be transitioning to the role of Executive Vice President, Cineplex and General Manager, Cineplex Digital Media, effective January 1, 2018. Mr. Stanghieri has grown his over 20 year career at Cineplex through various roles ranging from Business Development to Real Estate, including acting as General Manager of Cineplex Digital Solutions prior to it becoming part of CDM.

He and Mr. Prigioniero will work closely together until April 1, 2018, to ensure a seamless transition. The team at CDM will continue its focus on the successful roll-out of existing client programs, as well as a number of other exciting client projects that are currently underway.
