Our Team

For a former carpenter who should have had a career crafting oak refectory tables in deepest Devon, David casts a long shadow in the lighting industry…  

A northern soul boy, David arrived in London in 1980 with his beautiful wife Gail in an old Ford Escort with a two-man tent. He quickly landed a Saturday job at the prestigious London Lighting Company, ending his tenure there in 1987 as Company Director.  He’s been his own man ever since…

A collector and admirer of beautiful things, (Whitefriers glass, Panerai watches, Jeffery West shoes, the list goes on…) you’ll invariably find him in his man cave making and repairing stuff. His favoured maxim ‘Fortune Favours the Brave’ continues to fuel his ambition of simply designing and manufacturing the right kind of light fittings, that that produce the right kind of light.

Having lit some of the most incredible places, spaces, and things globally, David’s greatest triumph remains that of continuing to build his family business as a leading British lighting brand that is revered, respected, and award-winning the world over…(and he’s still the only Blackberry user we know)!

After many successful years climbing the ladder in the tough world of finance to become one of the UK’s best performing brightest stars, Louise setup her own exclusive financial wealth management business.

An accomplished, forward thinking, financial and business consultant to high net worth individuals and corporate clients, Louise brings sound and respected financial stewardship to The Light Corporation.

Her ability to inspire collective bold thinking, and identify real opportunities for the mutual benefit of The Light Corporation, its clients and suppliers has allowed us to be able to retain our many established clients, and forge great relationships with new ones.  Her influence has resulted in effective, efficient and evolving sales & procurement processes, and procedures, which are the bedrock of the business.

She prides herself on enhancing and forging transparent collaborative working relationships with all those connect to the business both internally and externally – all built on integrity, trust and honesty and excellence.

As a proud working-mum of two, (as well as a husband, two dogs and beautiful pony), there’s never a dull moment in her day!

From a young age, Andy had a curious, enquiring mind and a determination to understand how things worked and how they were made: making a career in engineering and research & development the obvious choice for him (and his appointment to Group Product Development Manager an obvious one for us!) 

His lighting career began at a fast-paced LED company; honing his design and technical skills to translate large format advertising, into illuminated led billboard systems. He managed prestigious blue-chip accounts as Head of Product & Innovation, fine-tuning supply management and procurement systems and collecting along the way a prestigious LUX Award for the RGBW lighting installation at London’s Waterloo IMAX.

With us for four years, Andy leads our in-house design team; using his product design skills and manufacturing knowledge daily to create, build and deliver our enviable standard and bespoke offering to the world!

After graduating from Nottingham Trent University with a BA in Theatre Design and Technology, Georgia followed her dream by travelling halfway around the world to Sydney to live and work before moving on to spend a year exploring Australia, New Zealand and Thailand.

Having previously worked in various high-pressured event and office management roles, she finally saw the light and joined us in 2019. As a devotee of KonMari she loves a system for everything she does. She has developed the business internally by creating sales plans and systems, and externally by managing some of our most important client accounts, ensuring they have a smooth customer experience from quote to delivery.

She’s passionate about interior design and is always planning, drawing, painting, making or building something…be it IKEA flat pack, or a new marketing campaign! Her favourite expression is ‘I can do it!’...and she does

With a degree in Architecture, Hiten brings his visually creative lighting concepts, and detailed technical lighting design skills to all of his projects. He’s worked in industry for 7 years, building his knowledge and experience across all design sectors.

Working closely with architects, interior designers and clients, Hiten is in charge of creating amazing, inspiring lighting schemes from conception to completion. He cites his projects No.1 Palace Street and the Royal Opera House, as being some of his most satisfying and successful to date.

A sports fanatic, Hiten’s first question in the morning is usually "did you see the game last night?!", which was accompanied by a particularly wide grin when Liverpool won the Premier League. Outside of work, Hiten loves a challenge, having recently run the Milton Keynes Marathon and still managed to walk into the work the following day!

After earning a First-Class degree in Product Design Engineering from Brunel University, Tom began his career designing bespoke architectural lighting products for landmark projects across the UK; most notably the Royal National Theatre and Victoria & Albert Museum. He jumped ship to join us four years ago, focussing on managing our global Superyacht lighting projects.

When he’s not cycling in the Chiltern Hills or climbing mountains, he can be found presenting our products to Superyacht designers or engineers, and installers in the shipbuilding yards of Northern Europe and beyond.

He can spot a scratch in mirror-polished stainless steel a mile off – something that has earned him a formidable reputation amongst our suppliers.

Throughout his childhood Chris was always aware of the importance of good lighting. There are not many kids that walk into a toy shop and notice the lighting first, then the toys – having a father in the industry will do that!

Chris spent his youth collecting comic books and film memorabilia, dreaming one day of being an illustrator for Marvel.  However post landing a job in old and dimly lit bar whilst studying, Chris vowed to rid the world of shoddy lighting one project at a time, and began his career as a lighting designer.

Through his love of lighting and appreciation of architecture, he’s been able to specialise in the technical, commercial and creative sides of the industry; travelling the world and remaining faithful to his personal mission.

Sham is our enthusiastic product designer. With a First-Class Honours degree in his pocket for product design, his belief that ‘light chooses you’, propelled him into lighting design.  Something we are grateful for.

Sham combines his knowledge of 3D CAD engineering and graphic design, to bring to life creative ideas both big and small. With us for 10 years, you just have to step inside a Nando’s, Tattu, Warner Bros Studios Leavesden, or the Imperial War Museum, Caffé Nero - and you’ll see his clever creations in all their glory.

Ciaran joined us in March 2019, he came with an engineering background, which has given him a wealth of experience and knowledge, and with a ‘can do’ attitude he was a perfect fit for the purchasing role.  He has a love for motorbikes and things with a technical or mechanical aspect and does not mind getting his hands dirty to get jobs completed.  He is enthusiastic with a fun-loving attitude who always has a smile on his face especially when it comes to Friday when it is time for ‘Sandwich Club’!
