We are delighted to announce that Peter van der Kolk has joined the company as our new Chief Executive Officer moving from Helvar, the international lighting electronics manufacturer, where he was the Business Development Director. Peter is at the forefront of lighting technology bringing with him a wealth of experience as former Chairman of DALI, which is the global standard for digital lighting control. With his passion for technology, Peter also plans to carry on his work as a STEMNET Ambassador – giving up his spare time to inspire young people working in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).
Our Design Director, Sally Storey, says, ‘Peter’s arrival represents the start of a new era. Lighting has come a long way in the last few years but new technology and simpler controls are continuing to create more and more opportunities – in residential interiors and gardens. Peter’s technology and business expertise coupled with our understanding of lighting design represents a rare set of skills in the industry. Our aim is to grow the business with our ever developing unique products and services for residential interiors – perfect for the lighting designer’s tool box living up to our motto “Inspire with Light”.’
