New CEO Craig Storey and Sales Director Craig McQueen bring unrivalled experience to expand Lightware’s business across the UK market
London, UK, 14 July 2022 – Lightware Visual Engineering is excited to announce the appointments of Craig Storey as CEO and Craig McQueen as Sales Director to head the UK team. Under their leadership Lightware UK will consolidate its position in the region with a new focus on growth after a hugely successful last financial year.
Craig Storey heads the Lightware UK office, overseeing all aspects of the UK business and its strategy. After joining Lightware a few weeks before COVID hit, Craig has 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.
Joining Storey is Craig McQueen, who will take charge of a growing Sales Team, in times of an ongoing recruitment drive. He brings with him deep knowledge gained from decades of unrivaled experience in the industry.
Lightware UK’s team can look forward to further growth and rewards for their hard work. For Lightware UK customers, the investment will mean further awareness of the brand and more opportunities to deliver world class switching and distribution products.
“These are very exciting times and I’m looking forward to the challenge of building on this impressive recent success,” said Craig McQueen, Sales Director of Lightware UK. “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.”
UK CEO Craig Storey said, “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.”
