PPDS appoints Franck Racapé as head of global commercial
The company has announced a new senior management structure to extend its global growth plans, with general manager, Chris Colpaert, confirming his departure.
Current EMEA vice president Franck Racapé has been appointed as head of global commercial, international business development director Martijn van der Woude has been appointed as head of global business development and marketing, and Robert Hsu has been appointed as head of global product strategy.
Racapé, van der Woude, and Hsu will report to PPDS parent company TPV senior vice president Nico Vernieuwe.
This new leadership team has been structured to further accelerate the company in its 2020 – 2025 growth plan on a global level, designed around three strategic business pillars: Global Markets, Business Development and Marketing, and Product Management.
The leadership trio has worked closely together to successfully oversee PPDS' most recent evolution, including a full-scale company rebrand and the launch of a brand new market strategy in 2021.
"Our success in the professional display industry is a cornerstone of our group's development," Vernieuwe says.
"The implementation of our new total solutions strategy, our global approach, and our sustainability programs are all key components.
"Deploying these seamlessly across all markets on a truly global basis is the real value add for our partners and their customers.
"I am delighted to announce our newly appointed leadership team in time for our customers, stakeholders, and the industry as a whole, to meet them and learn about our vision for the future, at ISE in Barcelona from 10-13 May, and at Infocomm in Las Vegas from 4-10 June."
