Poppe has a strong background in the corporate AV market, having worked at Harman, AMX and Crestron and will primarily be tasked with helping Absen to build its fixed installation business in the area. In addition, he will work closely with Absen’s local distributors and system integrators (VADs/VAPs) and help develop the company’s regional channel strategy. Poppe started at Crestron in 2007 and was focused on the Benelux region as a technical sales manager, before moving away from the tech side of things to work as a sales manager. In 2011, Poppe moved to AMX, which was, in turn, acquired by Harman in 2013. “At Harman in 2018 I worked internationally in the EMEA region, specialising in the corporate, education, and government verticals,” said Poppe. Absen Welcomes Back Ben Phelps as Retail Industry Director “Despite this relatively narrow focus, Harman’s vast distribution network and presence in the rental market taught me a great deal in terms of end user engagement and business development.” In his new role at Absen, Poppe will use his extensive knowledge of the Benelux region to manage dayto-day activities with local distributor Van Domburg Partners, as well as building strong relationships with key resellers in the region. “The Benelux market sees a lot of investment, given its relatively small geographical size,” Poppe said. “It is a very dense market, especially in the Netherlands, where they are keen to adopt new technologies as early as possible. Our next target is the major universities in the area, for whom the capabilities of LED over projection in key auditoriums can really allow them to distance themselves from their competitors.” n LED display manufacturer, Absen, has re-hired Ben Phelps as its retail industry director. Phelps’ focus will be on developing retail opportunities in Europe, as well as supporting Absen sales teams and systems integrators worldwide. “A lot of the major retailers have headquarters in Europe, so we know there is plenty of opportunity to grow Absen’s burgeoning retail portfolio. Thanks to my time in the region I already have great relationships with a lot of very capable local integrators.” Phelps started in the LED industry through his time with Spanish systems integrator, Trison. He explained: “The company only had 15 employees when I first arrived and focused primarily on audio integration projects. Through its dealings with fashion retailer Inditex, Trison became involved in selling LED into the industry; a decision that eventually saw 5,000 LED screens being sold to stores in 100 countries. “it’s an honour for me to be able to return to a company that I respect so much, and a company that has been at the forefront of the LED industry for many years,” he concluded. “I have full confidence in the products that we are offering and I’m sure Absen has a very bright future.” n 14 KIOSK solutions KIOSK solutions 15
