CoreMedia Celebrates its 25th Anniversary with Expanded Leadership and Increased Momentum
Company expands its team while commemorating a quarter century of helping global brands deliver iconic digital experiences
HAMBURG, Germany and ARLINGTON, Va., April 19, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- CoreMedia, developer of the agile content management and digital experience platform, CoreMedia Content Cloud, today announced its 25th anniversary as the technology engine behind many of the world's most iconic online brands. The company is capping this milestone by welcoming a new addition to its leadership team – Chief Marketing Officer, Gretchen Nemechek. With the help of this new leadership, the company will focus on expanding its global market presence and enhancing its core technology platform in 2021, delivering increased business flexibility, openness, affordability and faster time to value.
CoreMedia began in 1996 as a software project in the Computer Science department at the University of Science and Technology in Hamburg, Germany. Its founders included the company's current CEO, Soeren Stamer, his fellow student, CoreMedia Distinguished Engineer, Andreas Gawecki, and their academic advisors, Prof. Joachim W. Schmidt and Prof. Florian Matthes.
The company developed its advanced content management and brand orchestration engine by working with some of the world's most demanding and competitive organizations, including T-Mobile, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, Emerson Electric, and the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, Canada. It has brought these same capabilities – including composability, flexibility, scalability and speed – to a new generation of clients in the retail and fashion space including Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger, Under Armour, and Deckers Brands.
"As we enter our second quarter century as a company, I could not be prouder of the team and what we have accomplished," said Stamer. "But we would not have achieved any of it were it not for our amazing customers and partners. It is the effort of these iconic brands and allies that have really made this possible. As we move forward, the pace of change will only accelerate. As business spins faster and information is exchanged quicker than ever, we will have to collaborate even more closely to build the models that will sustain the next generation of brands and futureproof organizations."
