NanoLumens adds creative skills with sales director appointment

NanoLumens has recruited lighting design specialist Simon Deary to head up its sales team for the EMEA region.

Deary, regional sales director EMEA, will be based in the company’s Bath, UK office and will contribute creative skills as well as managing sales for the region.

He will report directly to David DaCosta, managing director EMEA at NanoLumens. Da Costa said the appointment was necessary as the company expanded in the region.

“Through his unique background in lighting design and LED engineering, Simon has a well-versed understanding of the industry, and will be able to show a variety of businesses how our solutions can help them to achieve their customer engagement goals and objectives,” he added.

Before joining NanoLumens, Deary founded Son Et Lumiere, an LED design firm specializing in high-end events. Deary worked on projects such as the Expendables 3 premier in Cannes and London, W Hotel Verbier, and the Cosmopolitan Awards.

Prior to this, Deary was the director of LED PoisonÔ, a technology, and visual systems supplier for entertainment shows. Deary also served as area sales manager at Philips Color Kinetics, an LED lighting distributor and installer, as well as lighting design positions with theatre companies throughout the UK, including Bill Kenwright Limited, Green and Lenagan Limited, and Show Credits Theatre.
