International lighting technology expert Phil McGee has been appointed Vice President of Commercial & Industrial Sales at the Nualight Group as the LED lighting technology specialist continues to drive its global expansion and market diversification strategy.
Phil McGee was the former Vice President of Sales at NXP Semiconductors where he was responsible for the worldwide Philips account, plus the global lighting and 'Internet of Things' customer bases.
Commenting on his new role at Nualight, Phil McGee said: "I'm really excited to be joining Nualight, especially now when the positive environmental impact of switching to LED lighting is so topical. However it's the extra functionality that can be introduced into lighting fixtures to facilitate smarter control that appeals to me the most. Nualight is a company that punches well above its weight and has both the agility and competences to execute this vision."
Nualight Group CEO Shaun Gray said: "Phil's considerable experience and vision for how LED technology fits into the smarter buildings trend will accelerate Nualight's momentum into new strategic commercial and industrial market segments globally."

Nualight's vision is to bring lighting into a new technology age, delivering smart LED lighting solutions that maximise the profitability and productivity of the lit space.
