We are proud to announce that subtitling and dubbing specialists Hippeis Media, founded 2006 by Costa Kotsianis and Lisa Furuland, joins forces with renowned media entrepreneur Ignas Scheynius, former Director of PrimeText International Eduardo Afonso, and highly experienced subtitling expert Martin Herclik.  This partnership means shared ownership between the five individuals of Hippeis Media AB. Ignas has been appointed Chairman of the Board. Martin Herclik has been appointed Managing Director Nordic, and Eduardo Afonso is deputy MD Nordic.

These additions to the Management Team strengthens Hippeis Media’s sales capacity. The localization industry is a highly competitive market, but all of the Hippeis Media partners are united in a strong belief that the market needs a player which is more flexible and cost-effective than the competition. The answer is naturally spelled Hippeis Media.

By joining forces we now represent a truly unique company which is able to deliver a single supplier, high quality and cost-effective alternative. Our direct accountability brings peace of mind to the client. We take great pride in and enjoy what we do, and the clients can tell.’

The Hippeis Media Team is a Dream Team of professionals, from both production and broadcast services backgrounds, each and all with between 10 and 30 years of experience.
