The official news release has just been issued by LG, so I thought I’d do a quick follow up on the news I leaked a few weeks back about LG’s newest addition to their Digital Signage team.
I did some further research and found out that Jeff’s position is in reality- the result of the consolidation of two positions – a VP to focus on the International market AND a VP to focus solely on US opportunities. Apparently LG was looking to hire BOTH Jeff Dowell (For the Int’l VP) and Scott Koller (US-VP) as part of the their team.
When Mr Koller decided to turn down his LG opportunity, (the next question is, why would Wireless Ronin’s CEO want to entertain leaving his post…) they consolidated his position to leverage Jeff’s International and Domestic expertise.
So, I’d say that Mr. Dowell is LG’s “best choice” vs. “second choice” as referenced in the follow up comment posted on the the DailyDOOH by a reader named Larry that knows alot about Wireless Ronin’s insider info – and its not Larry Blaney
