PPDS embarks on major management restructure

PPDS’ senior management team has recently undergone a major restructure.

Current Vice President EMEA, Franck Racapé, and Director International Business Development, Martijn van der Woude, together with Robert Hsu, will asume the roles of Head of Global Commercial, Head of Global Business Development and Marketing, and Head of Global Product Strategy respectively, reporting directly to Nico Vernieuwe, Senior Vice President at TPV, PPDS’ parent company.

General Manager, Chris Colpaert has now confirmed his departure.

 Franck Racape will take the commercial lead for all international markets, with the exception of China.

 Martijn van der Woude joined PPDS at the beginning of 2019, and has been responsible, for the company’s LED portfolio, as well as its sustainability roadmap. He will also focus on end-to-end integration of the company’s go-to-market strategy.

Robert Hsu who joined PPDS in early 2020 as Head of Global Product Strategy will continue the expansion of the PPDS product and solution portfolio. This has seen the company grow from a traditional manufacturer of digital signage and professional TVs to include interactive and collaboration displays, signage TVs and DV LED in the past two years, as well as a soon-to-be-launched remote display management cloud platform.

Nico Vernieuwe said: “Our success in the professional display industry is a cornerstone of our group’s development. The implementation of our new total solutions strategy, our global approach, and our sustainability programs are all key components. Deploying these seamlessly across all markets on a truly global basis is the real value add for our partners and their customers.

Franck added: “I’m honoured to have been entrusted, together with Martijn and Robert, to lead the company forward on a global scale. We have achieved so much in a relatively short period, and I believe we’re we’re still only just getting started, with some incredibly opportunities ahead.”
