Amsterdam, October 20 2023: PPDS, the exclusive global provider of Philips professional displays, digital signage, interactive displays, direct view LED and professional TVs, has announced leadership changes for its central team to drive, develop, and deliver advanced AV solutions for partners and customers around the globe.
The team – located in Ghent, Belgium and scaling to Bangalore, India – is headed by experienced Software Director, Siddarth Gopal, who has worked at PPDS’ parent company, TPV, since 2013. Relocated from Taipei to the company’s Amsterdam head office, Siddarth is a long-time contributor to PPDS and its Android platform development – used across the Philips Professional Displays portfolio and technology to which the company is committed into the long term.
Sian Rees, who spearheaded the development and launch of Wave and the ProStore ecosystem, has been promoted to join the PPDS Business Development team, assuming the newly created position of Business Development Director Wave and Software Partnerships. Also based in Ghent, but with a global remit, Sian will now focus on Wave’s go-to-market, scale-up, and future vision, working with strategic solution partners and expanding the PPDS ProStore marketplace. Sian will work closely with PPDS product and business managers, industry experts, and new and existing solutions partners, to ensure the company continues to evolve with the latest technologies, and to meet the growing expectations of retail customers into the future.
One of PPDS’ latest and greatest total solutions successes has been the creation and launch of PPDS Wave – the secure, state-of-the-art cloud platform designed to bring a scalable and future-proofed approach to remote device management of display fleets of any size.
