In the Australian market.
Exclusive brand licensee for Philips-branded televisions worldwide, TP Vision, has welcomed Jason Oh (pictured) as sales director for Australia to further grow the Philips TV range locally.
This is the first time a sales director has been appointed by TP Vision in Australia to focus on the local Philips TV business.
Tempo Australia currently distributes six models of Philips-branded TVs through JB Hi-Fi and The Good Guys, along with Ingram Micro and other regional distributors across Australia.
Oh brings more than 30 years of industry experience from management, sales, product and merchandising roles. Most recently, he was product and sales manager for Tempo Australia which included work on Philips TVs. He has also worked for Hitachi, Sharp, Sanyo, Imation and Laser.
In his new role with TP Vision, Oh will be responsible for managing existing relationships and developing new channels to further grow access to the range of Philips televisions, which currently comprises 19 models from 22-inch to 70-inch, featuring Philips innovations including Ambilight and the P5 Perfect Picture Engine.
Commenting on his appointment, Oh said he looks forward to working with distributors, as well as retailers and consumers to share the ever-expanding range.
“Philips is a well-known brand in Australia, a decades-long heritage that means consumers rightfully trust the quality and innovation that comes with owning a Philips TV.”
TP Vision regional country lead, Dion Yong said Australia is an important market for the company, and Oh’s appointment reflects a desire to grow the Philips TV business.
“We need to deliver this through stronger channel relationships, both existing and new, as well as a brand and marketing strategy and we are confident that Jason will help bring this to fruition in Australia. We need to ensure Philips can regularly demonstrate its innovation in picture technology and look forward to working with Jason moving forward.”
Philips and TP Vision have been in partnership since 2012 to produce and sell Philips televisions worldwide. TP Vision works with Philips’s global team in Europe to bring television products to market.
At this year’s IFA, Philips announced that its TV division would be renamed Philips TV and Audio to reflect its vision of the partnership between picture and sound.
Powermove is currently the Australian distributor for Philips soundbars. Powermove also distribute products for iLuv, Motorola, Pioneer and Toshiba in the home entertainment category.
