On October 1, Nils Büker will join Cine Project (CP), Germany’s most successful cinema integrator, as Managing Director. The physicist was previously a member of the top management of the Japanese company USHIO at its European headquarters near Amsterdam. Here, for 23 years, he initiated and realized the company’s continuous growth with a focus on the cinema market in EMEA and CIS countries. Among others, he made USHIO the market-leader for projection lamps. With his professional but also personal approach he supported all kinds of cinema operators, from small cinemas with one screen to international cinema chains. He was also responsible for various OEM’s of cinema equipment, with whom he negotiated global cooperations.
Nils Büker says about his new position: “I know Franz Kober for more than 20 years now. He and his companies have always impressed me with their consistency, innovative strength and special proximity to customers. Especially in difficult times I appreciated Cine Project as a reliable partner in my role as a supplier and many CP customers tell me the same from the customer’s point of view. I am very much looking forward to work with the competent Cine Project team and to the new challenge. Our customers can look forward to innovations meeting the changes in the market and the needs of their visitors. Together with our team, we will stand by their side, also in difficult times.”
CEO Franz Kober adds, “The cinema and film industries are in a state of flux and was just hit hard by the Corona crisis. I am glad winning Nils Büker, an expert with many years of experience as well as an excellent technical and business education, for Cine Project. With him, the Cine Project Group will be even better able to meet the demands of our customers and our expansion into new markets and regions will be realized even faster.”
