NEC Display Solutions strengthens focus on specialist markets with two new appointments
London, 22 June 2011 – NEC Display Solutions further strengthens its focus on specialist vertical markets with new appointments within the medical and colour sectors. With specialist products already established in these sectors, NEC seeks to further strengthen and build market share, demonstrating its commitment to niche high-end markets. Steve Cotton takes on the role of Colour and Media Sales Specialist focusing on the creative and print markets with the award winning SpectraView® Displays whilst Freddie Elliott is appointed Sales Manager for NEC’s Medical Displays in the healthcare sector.
NEC’s SpectraView Reference series offers a superior colour critical solution for the most demanding pre-press and soft-proofing applications, as well as for professional colour-critical image and video editing. Cotton, previously Account Manager at Eizo, joins NEC as the company launches its flagship 30inch SpectraView model.
The 27inch SpectraView Reference 271 has been voted the ‘Best Expert Photo Monitor’ by members of the Technical Image Press Association (TIPA), further endorsing the brand. For semi-professional graphics and photographic work, NEC’s PA range offers accurate, consistent and repeatable colour performance.
SpectraView models and the PA series are distributed across Europe by Color Confidence, the leading value added distributor in the digital imaging markets.
“NEC is a highly respected quality brand with a broad range of products already established in the colour sector,” says Cotton. “We are well placed to meet the demands of this specialist sector and I relish the challenge to strengthen and grow NEC’s position in this exacting market place.”
Freddie Elliott takes on the role of UK Healthcare Sales Manager at a time when opportunities in the medical market ramp up as hospitals look to replace and upgrade their PACS systems. NEC Display Solutions have the widest product portfolio of LCD and projected display solutions for the healthcare market, combining the latest innovations in display technology with Japanese design quality and reliability.
Elliott said “with a firm platform to build on, NEC is already a well trusted name in the medical field and we will seek new opportunities with our MDView Series monitors to achieve growth in what is a very specialised market.” Elliott brings to NEC a wealth of knowledge with extensive experience in sales management within the healthcare sector having previously worked for companies such as Fuji Film and Medtronic.
The new appointments ensure that NEC Display Solutions is equipped to meet the challenges ahead and demonstrate the significance NEC places in vertical markets and the investment made in delivering products and solutions to meet the exacting demands from professional niche sectors.
Simon Jackson, VP for NEC Display Solutions commented “we are delighted to have Steve and Freddie on board, they offer great knowledge and experience in their specialist areas. With such a high calibre team, exceptional products and NEC’s enduring reputation, I am confident that we are well placed to meet the challenges ahead.“ He added „this is an exciting time for the company as we build on our strengths and evolve toward a Total Display Solutions company.“
