Luc Peumans becomes the majority shareholder and CEO with immediate effect
Belgium - Creative lighting and visual design practice Painting With Light has announced a restructure, with Luc Peumans becoming the majority shareholder and CEO with immediate effect, taking over all the company's day-to-day management.

Luc founded Genk based Painting With Light in 1999. He comments, "To move forward on the same trajectory for the next 15 years, I needed to be fully in control and accept responsibility for our future strategies, investments and direction ... and so the deal was negotiated on that basis".

He adds that he and his former business partners - Dimi Theuwissen and Jim Stas - are looking forward to new challenges and horizons and that they have parted "on the best possible terms", and very proud of what the award winning company has achieved to date.

Painting With Light specializes in creating lighting, set and visual designs for shows and live events encompassing a broad spectrum of the entertainment industry. It also works on key architectural projects and installations, where its multi-disciplinary approach has produced a unique "crossover" style that can bring built environments and spaces of all types to life.

The last three years in particular have been extremely busy, and seen Painting With Light's involvement with numerous high profile and cutting-edge visual projects worldwide.

The company's new headquarters is located at the historically significant C-MINE site in the mine's former horse stables, a listed building which has been lovingly restored by Peumans over the last two years combining imagination and industrial heritage with modernist invention.
