Digital Cinema Media (DCM) has today announced that Jonathan Durden, Co-Founder of media agency PHD, Founder below the belt grooming and consultant, has been engaged as a Strategic Advisor.

Karen Stacey, DCM’s CEO, said: “At DCM we are continually seeking to broaden our knowledge, our partners and our strategic offering, so I’m delighted that we can benefit from Jonathan’s extensive experience and visionary thinking within the business. Having the counsel of Jonathan, along with our Chairman Nigel Sharrocks, will help us further grow our medium after a phenomenal 2015, with the momentum continuing into 2016.”
Jonathan Durden, Strategic Advisor, DCM, added: “Cinema is the last bastion of big brand advertising. People pay to appreciate all content without interruption. I love this chance to promote such a powerful message alongside Karen's team.”
