Reporting to PPDS business director for DACH, Rainer Bloch, both Nadia — based in Mönchengladbach — and Werner — based in Munich — have assumed the roles of dedicated sales managers for digital signage, bringing more than 50 years of combined high-level AV sales and system integration experience.
Nadia and Werner will be responsible for identifying and supporting sales opportunities in new and existing areas of Germany and Austria, while growing and working closely with PPDS’ network of “valued integration partners and customers.” Nadia’s core focus will be supporting key accounts and driving new business within the North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) region of Western Germany.

Training and meetings will take place inside the company’s new showroom, situated close to Munich airport, as well as on-site, and at regional and international trade fair events.
Speaking about their appointments, both Werner and Nadia hailed PPDS’ growing reputation and presence in the market, fuelled by its evolving range of innovative professional display solutions and backed by a devotion to customer support, making the decision to join a simple one.

To accomplish our mission to consult and serve customers better, we need the best people. Nadia and Werner tick the boxes, both in terms of their experience and capabilities, but also on a cultural and personal level for our business.
