Nationwide Marketing Group said this week that it has added Tom Hickman as its new senior vice president of consumer electronics. Hickman, formerly of Toshiba, will focus on HDTV, computer and tablet products.
“Tom was part of the team that consolidated Toshiba’s Television and Computer divisions,” Nationwide executive vice president Dave Bilas said as part of the announcement. “As our industry continues to move toward the integration of HDTV, tablet devices and computers, his experience will help our members move beyond the industry’s current baby boomer vision of the TV business toward an evolving gen-X and gen-Y mix of HDTV, tablet and computer marketing.”
“I’ve been working closely with Nationwide’s members and leadership for years. I feel at home here and look forward to joining Merchandising VP Doug Schatz and SEN Executive Director Jeannette Howe to continue building on the solid foundation they’ve created,” Hickman said.
