(Russia) – Exterior lighting manufacturer Abacus has appointed Anton Palnikov as its new Managing Director of Abacus Russia, LLC. The announcement was made at Interlight Moscow tradeshow this November and coincided with Abacus’s celebrations to mark ten years of working in Russia.

Palnikov joined Abacus as Commercial Director in June 2011, before which he headed up Russian offices for the Italian lighting manufacturer SIMES. In his new role he will head Abacus Russia LLC’s two offices, located in St Petersburg and Moscow.

“Abacus’ presence in Russia represents an important staging post for our global ambitions and continued development into Eastern European markets and under Anton’s strong leadership skills, I am confident these ambitions will continue to be realized,” said Andrew Morris-Richardson, Chairman of Abacus Russia LLC.

Abacus designs, manufactures and installs and maintains exterior lighting schemes ranging from road schemes, retail, airports and major sports grounds and has been involved in many high profile lighting projects in Russia. The teams in Petersburg and Moscow are currently working on several construction projects in preparation for the
international APEC summit in Vladivostok in 2012 and the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.
