PPDS announced the appointment of Vince Schuster as its new commercial vice president of Professional Displays North America. With a career spanning more than 25 years, Vince brings invaluable additional industry knowledge and experience to the PPDS team in North America, as well as the wider global company.
Vince has a proven track record for driving increased revenue, profit and sustainable growth at some of the world’s most influential AV/IT organizations specializing in digital signage and visual display technologies. He is an AVIXA-certified technology specialist, digital signage display expert and is certified by the Imaging Science Foundation.
Based in the greater Washington, D.C. metro region and reporting to Chris Colpaert, PPDS general manager, Vince is tasked with overseeing the day-to-day management of the business. Core focus areas will be to expand the business (and grow market share) and extend awareness of the PPDS brand. Vince will also work to highlight the benefits the business provides through its customer support, partner programs and portfolio of professional display solutions.
“Philips has always been a brand that leads from the front and is a company synonymous with quality, innovation and an eye on the future – three invaluable pillars,” Schuster said. “More and more customers are reaping the benefits of PPDS’ portfolio and I look forward to extending that reach and bringing more long-term value to the wider North American market.”
