Lightware Visual Engineering has appointed Craig Storey as CEO and Craig McQueen as sales director to head the UK team. Under their leadership Lightware UK hopes to consolidate its position in the region with a new focus on growth after a “hugely successful” last financial year.
Promoted from sales director, Storey (pictured) will now head up all aspects of the UK business and its strategy. After joining Lightware a few weeks before Covid hit, he steered the company through the uncertainties of the pandemic while managing to maintain revenue for the UK through the first year [2019-20] and then grow the team who delivered the highest revenue year for the division on record for the 2021-22 financial year.
McQueen heads up a growing sales team, as the company undergoes a recruitment drive. He brings with him deep knowledge gained from decades of experience in the industry.
“These are very exciting times and I’m looking forward to the challenge of building on this impressive recent success,” said McQueen. “Lightware is a fantastic company to work for with big things happening over the next five years, both in the UK and the international stage. We’re going to have a big impact on the market and can’t wait to meet our customers’ needs.”
Storey added: “I am very honoured to head the UK team as CEO and be offered the opportunity to build on the last few years of growth that have been achieved so far. I firmly believe that Lightware’s approach to product and engineering, as well as their customer focus, create opportunities for growth that are difficult for others to replicate. I have no doubt that we have the strategy, product, and a growing team of professionals to create value for our customers and fulfil our potential.”
