Hotlamps, the replacement lamp specialist, has recruited Simon Kitson as European general manager.
Kitson (pictured), previously of Just Lamps where he was European sales and marketing manager, joins the trade-only lamp specialist to support the company’s growth aspirations across Europe. In addition, with the UK seen as a key country for expansion of the Hotlamps business, Waseem Ghos has been appointed as UK country manager.
Selling in 14 countries, Hotlamps says that it continues to focus on delivering strong specialist service for its resellers. Jon Sidwick, European Director, described the headcount investment as a natural progression of a growing business.
“Simon comes to us with deep experience of the lamp market and also the AV channel,” he said. “Together with Waseem, we have a focussed senior team who will be working closely with our vendors to ensure we offer the best possible service levels and support to our customers.”
