Mike was employed in the summer of 2019 as the UK Sales Manager.
With a long and varied career in the lighting industry, Mike has worked for some of the largest and most well-known manufacturers.
“Having spent many years with large lighting producers such as Microlight and LPA Lighting and Energy Solutions, the challenge of working for a smaller, growing, specialist provider of lighting solutions was really exciting for me. In the last year, Shoplight has worked on some of the most exciting flagship retail stores to appear in the UK and it’s been wonderful being able to share these amazing retail spaces with our growing client base.”
Mike joined the company just under a year ago and his role is to take the products, services and benefits Shoplight offers to new retailers and designers.
“The response to our story and message has been fantastic. It is clear to me that retailers and designers want to work with companies that are entrenched in the same industry in which they operate and that they feel like we are for them and with them. In a time when competition for the consumer pound is increasing all of the time, Shoplight continue to invest in supporting retailers and their design partners in creating wonderful retail environments in which their customers can explore and engage with the products and the brand.”
Whilst Mike travels a lot in his job, the variety of working with new and established concepts, demonstrating new and exciting projects and helping to educate our clients gives Mike great job satisfaction.
“It’s important at all times to do my part in ensuring Shoplight is a successful company but it’s also great working for a business where value is created not by selling boxes with lights in, but creating concepts and helping people to achieve their goals.”
