Tom Novotny has joined PPDS as new Regional Manager as it continues to strengthen its North America hospitality team.
PPDS is the exclusive global provider of Philips digital signage, interactive displays, direct view LED, and hospitality TVs.
With almost 20 years’ experience, Tom is one of the AV industry’s most established and respected talents. He has held a number of senior leadership roles at some of the world’s leading technology companies and has a proud record of delivering growth and success during an unblemished career.
Based in Chicago, and reporting to Vice President of Hospitality for North America, Joe King, Tom’s responsibilities include, but are not limited to, working with PPDS’ expanding hospitality sales channel (resellers, integrators, and franchise owners), driving sales in the East Coast region, and communicating the exceptional benefits of Philips professional TVs (including Philips MediaSuite), as well as digital signage and direct view LED solutions for hospitality, and complementary software.
Joe King, Vice President of Hospitality for PPDS North America, commented “The industry is recognizing what an incredible asset Philips MediaSuite can be in their properties, giving guests what they want – the ability to watch content directly from their own streaming accounts on the big screen in 4K, or cast there from their own devices. We have seen our market share more than double each year and, with the addition of Tom to the team, 2023 looks set to be our best year yet.”
