Bruchsal, Germany, November 21, 2007– cdv Software Entertainment AG today announced that Thomas Huber has recently joined the cdv AG management team as Sales Director for the Germany-Austria-Switzerland (GAS/DACH) market. Mr. Huber is one of the most experienced sales specialists in the German-language gaming industry, having held senior sales positions for the past two decades. Most recently, he spent 15 years as the Sales Director for Atari Germany.
In his new role at cdv AG, Mr. Huber will be tasked first and foremost with building and expanding the company’s service spectrum as a full-service provider in Europe.
