My main interest has always been in the lighting sector and the effects correct lighting can give.So in 2008 I joined MG (a Low Energy lighting development company based in Scarborough) as Sales Director.
Developed the 8to5 Energy Saver and won the Shell Spring board award for products that best combat climate change. Our reputation grew and started to offer low energy lighting solutions to many blue chip companies

energy managers but also to contractors.
