NEC Display Solutions Europe has appointed Karsten Winther as its new VP of sales for EMEA.

Based in Munich, Winther will be charged with leading the AV manufacturer’s regional, corporate and channel sales teams.

Says the company’s president and CEO, Bernd Eberhardt, “As NEC Display Solutions increases EMEA-wide sales activities through its valuable partner network, it is critical to ensure that our overall sales and marketing strategies match our partners’ growing needs.

“Karsten brings solid expertise in product sales and channel sales strategies, and will help NEC to expand its business partners’ effectiveness and profitability.”
