Eidosmedia appoints new CEO

Christian Pelanconi will lead the global developer of digital publishing platforms for the news media and financial sectors.

Eidosmedia has announced the appointment of Christian Pelanconi as the company’s new Chief Executive Officer. 

Christian comes to Eidosmedia from financial services technology provider FIS, one of the world’s leading software and technology services companies, where he was responsible for the institutional & wholesale division in the EMEA region. Christian’s prior roles at SunGard (now acquired by FIS) have included developing non-Asian emerging markets, M&A activity in Europe and operational responsibilities in France and southern Europe. 

“I’m extremely pleased to be joining an organization as dynamic as Eidosmedia,” said Christian. “The company has superb technical solutions (cloud-based CMSs, CMSs for the publishing industry etc.), very talented people and an exceptional customer base.” He added: “As well as its consolidated position in powering more than 70 leading organizations in news media, financial services and corporate publishing, I believe that it has considerable potential in the new areas the company is now entering, such as the public sector and structured content authoring for life sciences. I look forward to working with my new colleagues on the next stage of our growth and development.” 

“I would like to thank Holger Hofmann for guiding the company over the last few months and his invaluable help during the transition period. I look forward to working with him as Chief Operating Officer, fully supporting our growth plans.”
