Tom Novotny Joins PPDS
PPDS has appointed experienced AV sales specialist Tom Novotny to its North America hospitality team.
With almost 20 years’ experience, Novotny has held a number of senior leadership roles at various technology companies and has a record of delivering growth and success during an unblemished career, according to PPDS.
“I am thrilled to join the PPDS hospitality team and to be part of what is truly an exciting time for Philips MediaSuite in the North American hospitality industry,” said Novotny. “This team has already accomplished so much, you can see how well they work together, and I could immediately tell it was a team I wanted to be a part of.”
Based in the Chicago area—and reporting to vice president of hospitality for North America Joe King—Novotny’s responsibilities include working with PPDS’ hospitality sales channel (resellers, integrators, and franchise owners), driving sales in the East Coast region, and communicating the benefits of Philips professional TVs (including Philips MediaSuite), digital signage, and dvLED solutions for hospitality and complementary software.
King concluded: “We have achieved impressive growth since launching in North America and we have added to our team with the best talent to ensure we maintain that momentum. 2023 is another important year for PPDS as we continue an accelerated phase of growth, intending to secure a top two position in the marketplace here. To achieve this, we must have the right people on our team, those who have a passion for the business and our incredible products, and, most importantly, who go above and beyond for our customers. Tom is definitely that person, and on behalf of PPDS globally, I welcome him to our team.”
