CTC announces new appointments to board of governors

Technology and New Products

Global cinema technology network CTC announced the appointments of Sarah Lewthwaite, managing director and senior VP for Europe at Movio, and Sandie Caffelle, sales and marketing manager at Jack Roe, to its board of governors.

“Technology continues to drive much of the change within the global cinema industry and we’re delighted to welcome Sarah and Sandie to the team,” said Richard Mitchell, president of CTC. “Whilst traditionally CTC has focused on technological developments within the auditorium, technology has spread rapidly throughout the cinema estate from ticketing through to point-of-sale, loyalty programs, digital signage and interactive experiences. These technologies are creating new and exciting experiences for moviegoers and we believe with the addition of the knowledge and expertise of Sarah and Sandie along with the skills of the entire CTC team, we can bring significant knowledge and expertise to help the industry leverage a better return on investment from these.”

Lewthwaite leads business development and provides strategic services to global exhibitors at data-analytics company Movio. She has over 15 years of cinema and loyalty experience and was formerly VP of marketing at Cineplex Entertainment in Canada. A regular presenter and contributor at exhibitions, seminars and events, she was named in Celluloid Junkie’s “50 Top Women in Cinema 2017” and is one of a small number of individuals selected to receive mentoring under UNICs Women’s Cinema Leadership Scheme aimed at providing support and guidance to international female cinema professionals with their careers.

Caffelle has worked with Jack Roe, a leading turnkey cinema IT systems provider, for over 26 years and has developed her skills from supplying 35mm film products in the early days to the core elements of today's business: ticketing and point-of-sale, digital signage, movie information lines and a wide range of software solutions.

CTC will be appointing more governors over the coming months and will shortly be announcing its new 15-person advisory council to help provide steering and support on key focus areas.

The revamped CTC will begin offering membership opportunities to professionals and organizations in March. For further information on CTC including membership opportunities, visit www.cinema-technology.comor email info@cinema-technology.com.
