UK - Lancashire-based LED lighting manufacturer CFE Lighting has made two senior appointments to its team, as it looks to build on a strong trading performance over the last 12 months.
The company, which specialises in bespoke LED luminaires and lighting solutions for the commercial, industrial, and public sectors, has appointed Amanda Speight to the newly created role of national business development manager. David Clews has joined the business in the split role of general manager and North West area sales manager, with both recruits based at the company’s manufacturing facilities in Barrowford.
Both Amanda and David are industry veterans, with more than 60 years’ experience between them operating within the lighting sector.
In her new role, Amanda manages a four-strong sales team and is responsible for generating and securing new business, managing key accounts, and driving product development and innovation. She brings 35 years’ experience to the role, having started out running the family business, Speights Lighting, before taking on senior industry roles at retailer Harrison Lighting and manufacturer Powerlite Fitzgerald.
David has operated within the lighting industry for 31 years at a number of manufacturers. In his new role, he is responsible for the day-to-day management of the business and for developing and expanding the company’s product portfolio and securing new business in the North West, working closely with Amanda.
The appointments have been made as the business looks to build on double-digit growth over the last 12 months, fuelled by a customer base that includes blue chip companies. CFE Lighting, which was set up in 2015 by Chris Baldwin, managing director of Baldwin Engineering Holdings Group, recorded its highest-ever turnover of £1.1m over the 19/20 financial year.
The company currently has 10 employees and is planning on expanding its team further in 2021.
