Lightware UK appoints new CEO & sales director to focus on growth

Lightware Visual Engineering has announced Craig Storey as its new CEO and Craig McQueen as sales director to head the UK team.

The leadership appointments come as Lightware UK consolidates its position in the region with a new focus on growth after a highly successful last financial year.

Promoted to CEO from sales director, Storey will head the Lightware UK office, overseeing all aspects of the UK business and its strategy. Storey joined the company a few weeks before the pandemic and has since then steered the company through the uncertainties of the pandemic while managing to maintain revenue for the UK through the first year and then grow the team who delivered the highest revenue year for the division on record for the 2021-2022 financial year.

McQueen is joining Storey in the UK leadership team as the new sales director. Promoted from head of business development, he will take charge of a growing sales team in times of an ongoing recruitment drive. Having spent decades in the industry, he brings deep knowledge to the company.

“These are very exciting times and I’m looking forward to the challenge of building on this impressive recent success,” said Storey. “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.”

Storey added: “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.”
