In Betsy’s prior role as Vice President of Channel Sales, she was responsible for building and nurturing relationships with NEC’s top distributers and direct marketers. Her accomplishments include implementing numerous improvements and innovation to NEC’s partner programs, as well as growing sales through engaging vertically focused partners and enhancing resources for resellers. 

“Betsy brings the right mix of sales expertise and strategic focus that will enable NEC to better react to market shifts, competitive pressure, and changing customer needs,” said Todd Bouman, President and CEO of NEC Display Solutions of America. “Throughout her career here at NEC, Betsy has proven time and again that she possesses the leadership to elevate the company. As the provider of the most comprehensive set of digital signage solutions across verticals, including analytic business intelligence solutions such as NEC ALP, NEC is well positioned to continue to capitalize on sales growth with Betsy at the helm.”
