Lighting association welcomes new board members


On July 30, the Lighting Industry Association (LIA) held its general meeting. Due to Covid, this took place online, with many board members, the CEO of the LIA and the former acting CEO of the LIA were able to come together as a team.

Current President Terry Dean welcomed everyone and reflected over the past 18 months, highlighting the positive changes that have taken place at LIA. Terry also thanked the various committees that support the LIA and thanked Paul Crisp for his support in his tenure as interim CEO.

The LIA is led by a team of volunteer representatives from across the industry, known collectively as the LIA Council. Its goal is to help lighting member companies and individual members thrive and excel through up-to-date lighting training, testing, lobbying and knowledge. Each year, a selection of board members automatically retire, providing the opportunity for other LIA members to contribute. LIA CEO Matt Sturgess officially announced that the following members have been elected to the board in the May election for a four-year term: David Barnwell, Paul Coggins, Amanda Speight and Heidi De Lucchi, representing Commercial Lighting Fixtures ; Catherine Connolly, representing household lighting; and Simon Lilley, representing components, services and controls.

Matt thanked everyone who ran for office and those who voted. He also noted that Steve Stark retired in May 2021 and Peter Van de Kolk left John Cullen in 2020, and thanked them for their contribution and commitment to the LIA Council.

Matt Sturgess also confirmed that the officers in office until the 2022 AGM will be: President Terry Dean (DW Windsor); VP Peter McVeigh (International Status); and Vice President Matt Carpenter (Feilo Sylvania).

The AGM concluded with Terry Dean’s presentation of the LIA Presidents Award, which recognizes outstanding service to the lighting industry. This year’s recipient is David Wright, General Manager of Emergency Lighting Products and Jordan Reflectors.
