Sales director of Sycamore Lighting Gary Wilson has decided to retire, after 22 years working for the company.
According to the company, he has been a major driving force in the growth of Sycamore Lighting, guiding the company through a recession and a pandemic “with expert knowledge, drive, humour and determination.”
Managing director Gary Baxter commented: “When Gary Wilson joined Sycamore Lighting, lighting in the kitchen industry was in its infancy with florescent strip lights and R50 reflector lamps the only choice to illuminate the kitchen.
“But with the development of low voltage lighting, the company needed a lighting professionals and Gary was the perfect choice.”
He continued: “Gary did take some persuading to leave his current employment to join a fledgling company which was in its infancy, but he saw the potential to help build a business from a very low base.
“Gary and I worked very closely and together we grew the business to be an innovative market leader in the KBB sector with the same goals to supply the highest quality product at the right price and on time and we will always be firm friends.”
Retirement will allow Gary Wilson to spend more time with his family, particularly his grandchildren, watch Leeds United and enjoy horse racing, as well as write an autobiography.
