Matthias Hahn, who most recently headed Sky Deutschland’s commercial distribution team as Senior Vice President, will leave the German pay-TV operator at the end of July 2021.
After working for Sky for 14 years, Hahn developed the subscription broadcaster’s distribution business under the leadership of Professor Wolfram Winter and entered into distribution agreements with all major cable and telecom operators in Germany, in Austria and Switzerland as part of the team with Dr Holger EnÃlin and Simin Lange. .
Hahn studied business administration at the International School of Management in Dortmund and obtained his MBA from Bond University in Australia. Before joining Sky, the 44-year-old worked at a mid-sized management consultancy in Bad Homburg.
Along with Hahn, another longtime employee leaves Sky Deutschland. Thomas Henkel, who heads the Advertising, Partnerships & Distribution division, is also leaving.
Sky Deutschland thus separated from its entire general distribution department within 15 months. The UK based Sky headquarters are expected to take over distribution management centrally for all Sky markets in Europe, supported by small local teams in the different countries.
