LG Electronics must be absolutely mad as news reached us this morning that Jeff Dowell’s position, that of Vice President, Digital Signage in the LGE US, Business Solutions Group was eliminated yesterday in some kind of (bizarre) re-shuffle.
In the all too short time we spent with Jeff he was one of the display manufacturer execs that actually got this thing called ‘digital signage’. His work building out an eco-system around LG made an awful lot of sense. His work with BroadSign and the SuperSign stuff was visionary.
Jeff presided over one of the genuinely interesting things to come out of DSE 2011 as well. Gobsmacked to say the least.
