NEC Display Names Bouman New President And CEO

NEC Display SolutionsTodd_Bouman_headshot_1 has announced its new President and CEO of the Americas, with ex-Samsung exec Todd Bouman taking the post held for many years by Pierre Richer.

Bouman was previously Vice President, Marketing for commercial displays and mobile products in the Enterprise Business Division at Samsung Electronics Americas.

“Todd is a top performer and will take NEC Display to the next level of product innovation, market growth, channel development and solutions selling,” says Nick Akagi, President of NEC Display Solutions Worldwide, in a press release. “The display industry continues to grow and evolve with new technologies and services, making it possible to dynamically share and interact with digital information. Under Todd’s leadership, NEC will help many industries, including retail, transportation and education, improve their business models and enhance customer experiences through the deployment of display solutions.”

He starts at NEC in mid-May. Richer left NEC last summer – though I don’t know that there was ever an announcement or anything. Pierre’s Linkedin page says he left in July.
