With Simon Jackson leaving the business to join rival Samsung, NEC Display Solutions Europe has appointed Stefanie Corinth as Senior Vice President of Sales EMEA who will lead a revamped, customer-focused sales structure (ahead of the impending Sharp JV).
Stefanie has spent 18 years at NEC and has been promoted from the position of SVP Marketing and Business Development. She will also manage the D/A/CH region as acting General Manager D/A/CH.
In her new executive role, Stefanie will head up NEC’s existing teams for EMEA regional Sales including Channel- and Corporate Sales and she will oversee the new strategically defined key Business Segments.

Joining NEC in 2002 as Sales Manager for Germany for NEC-Mitsubishi, she has held numerous roles from Sales Director Central Europe for LCD displays to General Manager Sales Central Europe for displays, projectors and digital cinema.
Bernd Eberhardt, President and CEO at NEC Display Solutions Europe, will step in to serve as acting SVP Marketing and Business Development, in addition to his current responsibilities. He commented: “We are pleased to appoint Stefanie to take on this very important and challenging sales role. Stefanie combines an extremely high level of product knowledge with an in-depth experience of the EMEA AV/IT industry. I’m confident she will lead our sales teams from success to greater success.”
