British Media Firm DMS Expands to the U.S.

After ten years of providing European media companies with the turn-key services Hawk, Panther, Lynx and Tiger, UK’s Digital Media Services (DMS) has decided it’s time to properly unleash the herd onto U.S. shores. And to lead their Hollywood-headquartered efforts, the company has tapped a veteran Tinseltown publicist.

Per a report by Screen Daily, Michael Wuechterwill head up the new U.S. office after several decades of service with Paramount Pictures. The products he will be supporting include:

Hawk delivers specialized media, press monitoring and reporting for studios, music labels, sports and other branches of media. Panther offers video post-production services… Lynx is DMS’s creative division and produces tv spots, trailers, featurettes, EPKs, and multi-media presentations.

DMS also produces a monthly TV show, The Big Picture, designed to keep their clients appraised of upcoming movie releases and red carpet premieres. Their “About Us” website section meanwhile has a very cool employee-info page called Fun Stuff.
