Forward-thinking staff changes at Pharos

This autumn Pharos Architectural Controls has made a series of internal promotions and role changes across all its teams; to strengthen its presence in the international market and offer the best possible service to its existing partners.

 

Thomas Ladd has been promoted to the role of Pharos International Sales Director. He is now directly managing the sales team worldwide and developing commercial strategies in Pharos’ key territories. Ladd has been with Pharos since 2010, and has been instrumental in growing its business with key customers in North America during that time.

 

Pharos Managing Director Chris Hunt commented, “Tom’s promotion is a great fit for his experience and skills, and it comes at a very exciting time for Pharos to help progress our presence in the fixed installation market.”

 

Bas Hoksbergen is now Architectural Market Manager, with a broad remit to develop strategies that take Pharos into new markets in the wider world of architectural lighting. He will also be taking the lead in managing Pharos’ relationships with its larger corporate customers and OEM partners across all the regions, as well as coordinating Pharos’ work on special projects.

 

Richard Leivers has been hired as Pharos Product Manager. Leivers has been with the Carallon group for seven years, having previously worked as a developer in the Carallon FPGA team and then most recently as the Technical Product Manager for Brompton Technology, playing a key role in the development and growth of the Tessera product line since its inception.

 

Pharos Director Richard Mead says of Leivers, “Richard brings a lot of valuable skills and a fresh perspective to Pharos, which we believe will be very helpful over the coming year when we expect to be rolling out a lot of innovative new product offerings.”

 

Dave Shaw moves into a newly created role as Systems Integration Manager, working as part of the Product Management team led by Leivers. This position is focused on ensuring Pharos is fully equipped to integrate seamlessly with third parties, coordinating the IO Modules programme and providing second-level support for any projects attempting complicated integrations.

 

Liz Wynne has been with Pharos for many years. She takes on a new part-time, remote-working role as Associate Product Manager, working closely to support Leivers with the benefit of her extensive Pharos experience. Wynne makes up the third member of the Product Management team with Leivers and Shaw.

 

Tim Edwards has taken on the role of Global Support Manager alongside his existing role as Pharos’ UK Sales Manager. Edwards now has overall responsibility for Pharos technical support worldwide, and will act as a direct a link to the directors for any special support matters.

 

Mead commented, “As Pharos continues to grow internationally, we are delighted to see our team members grow with it, and fully support them as they take on new roles that challenge and inspire them and will better the company.”

 

 

Hunt added, “We believe this new structure for product management, support and marketing comprehensively rounds out and strengthens our team, and will push Pharos forward into what should be a very exciting year ahead.”
