Prime Light offer a unique solutions based business model which, when combined with a team of highly experienced product experts, provides significant benefits to its customers. By integrating an expansive product range with industry knowledge, Prime Light can take the pressure off when it comes to ordering multiple products and create a ‘one-box-to-open’ experience
As part of its strategic growth plans, first outlined back in February 2020, Prime Light is proud to announce the recent appointment of two new board members: Guy Madgwick, Sales and Marketing Director and Simon Weaver, Chief Financial Officer. The arrival of the two new board members expands the skillset of Prime Light’s management team, brings valuable experience and a fresh perspective to the organisation and demonstrates it has the confidence to continue to invest in the company’s future beyond the short-term impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Guy Madgwick will primarily be responsible for driving forward sales and increasing revenue in line with Prime Light’s growth plans. Guy’s career spans an impressive 20 years in the lighting industry, from manufacturing through to project management. Having worked predominantly in the controls sector, Guy has a tremendous track record – and when it comes to developing and motivating teams, he has proven results, having overseen sales teams who have produced exponential growth in companies such as Schneider Electric and Mitie.
Guy is joined by Simon Weaver, who brings with him 30 years of experience in accounting. Simon’s previous roles included CFO of Oliver, where he helped the business to grow from a small agency with big ambitions, employing just 20 people, to a large, multi-national, forward-thinking agency, generating well over £100m in revenues, and employing 1,200 staff globally. Simon has been brought on board to transfer his skills and expertise to the lighting industry, and his main task will be to support Prime Light in developing into the biggest lighting solutions provider in the UK.
Sean Hounslow, Managing Director of Prime Light says, “Attracting both Guy and Simon to Prime Light is a great endorsement of our strategy and ambition. Guy brings with him incredibly strong knowledge and experience within the industry and Simon will be vital to the financial growth of the company. After a trying year for everyone in the industry it’s fantastic to further strengthen the board and pursue our company ambitions.”
