Based in Singapore, he will lead regional sales and channel operations and is tasked with ensuring customers and partners have the resources needed for modern learning.
Promethean specialises in education-focused interactive displays and learning delivery software.
“Access to quality education is at the heart of every society,” said Ng.
“I am proud to be joining a company with such a strong education pedigree and look forward to working with our channel partners to make Promethean’s solutions widely accessible to all schools, teachers, and students in my region.”
Ng worked in tech and the IT channel for 20 years, previously holding senior leadership roles with CA, IBM, Blue Coat, and Motorola. Prior to Promethean, he was Beyond Trust Corporation APJ regional vice president.
Ng has also been on the accreditation/certification evaluation panel of the Singaporean National Infocomm Competency Centre in the education industry, and owned his own company while also serving on the executive committee of the Young Entrepreneurs’ Organization.
